Gourmet Lemonade

This is a lemonade recipe you won’t want to miss!

This is no ordinary lemonade, this is Blueberry Basil Lemonade. Three great flavors all blended together to make one incredible creation. Since summertime screams lemonade, it’s seems like there is no better time to start preparing for summer, than now.

August Lemons™ are perfect lemons for lemonade, they are very juicy. Therefore, they don’t require as many lemons as other varieties; and what better place to get them than directly from the fruit company that grows them. The tangy and sweet combination of this lemonade is a flavorful explosion, and I just love the hot pink color!

Gourmet Orchards August Lemons

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Note: one August Lemon yields ½ cup lemon juice. For every 1/2 cup of lemon juice the following ingredients apply.


  • 1/2 cup August Lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 4 fresh basil leaves


Blend ingredients together with an immersion blender then strain. Pour over ice in a shaker, strain and serve. If you prefer your lemonade on ice, fill glass half way with ice and enjoy.

For delicious “hard lemonade” add a shot of vodka to your shaker and this will soon become your favorite cocktail.
