Easy Blackberry Lemonade

There is just something about lemonade that screams summer. We make a gazillion variations of lemonade each summer depending on what we have on hand. Thanks to our CSA we have wonderful fresh NC berries being delivered to us on a weekly basis. This week the blackberries were particularly beautiful and I knew they’d pair perfectly with our homemade lemonade. Once you have the basic recipe down the variations are fairly limitless. You could even turn these into a “mommy and daddy lemonade” by adding a little rum ; )

Blackberry Lemonade
What you’ll need:
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1/4 cup blackberries + additional to garnish
