Blueberry Thyme Lemonade

 

Blueberry Thyme Lemonade

Grab your polka dot straws and pucker up princess. We’re serving up a pitcher of luscious lemonade today. Not your classic either. This is not your Grandma’s lemonade. Although I do think my Grandma would have loved this version. Lemonade makes me think of summer time, hot sweltering days, riding bicycles and yes lemonade stands. I hosted many a stand in my time growing up. I’m not sure I ever made much money other than enough to buy a pack of hubba bubba (which was and still is the bomb diggity of bubble gum) but it sure was a good time. I thank my Mom for fostering my entrepreneurial spirit. It’s one I don’t think I’ve ever grown out of.

I hope I never grow out of my love for lemonade. There’s something about squeezing fresh lemons until they give all they can give. That clean smell and tart flavor get me every single time. Yes I was that kid that loved to lick lemons. Weird, maybe. But that’s me. I’ve always marched to my own drum. Which might be why I can’t leave well enough alone. I have to add a little of this and a little of that and see where it goes. Like adding blueberries to simple syrup creating that gorgeous pink hue to this lemonade. It’s a little flirty and a whole lot flavorful with a touch of grown up complexity from thyme.

    Um.. Yeah hubba bubba was the bomb diggity of bubble gum! Nope, this ain’t my grandma’s lemonade, but it sure is something I’d suck down and spike with a wee bit (OK, ok – A LOT) of booze!
