Wild blueberry lemonade is easy to make, delicious, and super healthy. Try this blueberry lemonade from self-picked blueberries and you will immediately notice how strong and sweet the blueberries taste. Blueberries are super-berries in terms of vitamins and minerals, and I will definitely recommend you to find the berries in the woods yourself. You can drink the blueberry lemonade as it is, or mixed up 1: 1 with water or sparkling water if you want it to last a little longer. If you are into alcohol, a bit of vodka can be added and you have a wonderful drink.
