Sparkling Blueberry-Lavender Lemonade

Isn’t this drink’s bright magenta hue simply breathtaking? In the glass, it looks almost iridescent — like something out of a fairy world. How’d we do it? First, we layer simple syrup, chilled blueberry-lavender tea, and club soda over ice. Then, the magic happens: we slowly stir in fresh lemon juice, which changes the drink from deep blue to a purple-tinted pink.

No surprise, kids love watching the colors change! But we adults also love sparkling blueberry-lavender lemonade for its flavor. It’s so refreshing — tart and citrusy with a uniquely floral sweetness. And the little bit of effervescence from the club soda makes it so easy to down the entire glass in one dramatic slurp. The perfect pick-me-up on a hot summer’s day? Definitely.
