Easy Sparkling Blueberry Lemonade

Around our home, the husband and I are a huge water drinkers. We rarely drink anything but water and milk. In fact, the husband is coming up on about 3 years of no soda. While I completely lack his self control, I don’t have soda all that often either.  Because of this, pretty much by default, the toddler only drinks water and milk around home too.

So, the other night when we went to some friend’s for dinner and Grey was offered some apple juice, he literally didn’t even know what it was. I’ve never bought him apple juice (am I the worst mom ever?!). He got a sippy cup filled with the juice and he inhaled it. It was gone in less than 5 minutes and he was begging for more. About four cups later and we cut him off, but I vowed to buy him some apple juice soon. Which, by the way, we now have two containers of apple juice in our fridge.

All this said, when we go out to eat and don’t get water, the one thing we all love is flavored (or plain) lemonade. The husband’s favorite is raspberry or strawberry lemonade, Grey will drink just about anything, and my favorite? Blueberry lemonade! (surprise, surprise….)
