If you are looking for a tasty and refreshing drink, without any additives or preservatives, then this may be just what you are looking for.

You can make a pitcher of the drink, or mix yourself a single glass but whatever way you do it, you’ll have trouble drinking just one glass.

It’s also a great accompaniment to my no-bake fruit cobbler.


  • 1/2 pound of wild blueberries; fresh or frozen
  • 1 lime, cut in half
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of water
  • Carbonated water or club soda


  • Mesh sieve strainer
  • One Tablespoon – Could actually be any size spoon because it is not used for measuring but for smooshing. I find a tablespoon works best for me but you may find otherwise.
  • One small saucepan


Add blueberries, water and sugar to a saucepan.

Cook over medium heat for about 30 minutes, stirring frequently.

Allow the fruit syrup to cool.

Pour the fruit syrup through a mesh sieve strainer, into a mason jar.

Smash the fruit with a spoon to release any juices remaining.

Squeeze the juice of one lime into the syrup.

Fill a glass with ice.

Add 2 ounces of wild blueberry lime juice to the glass.

Top with club soda or carbonated water from your soda machine.

Garnish with a few blueberries and a slice of lime if desired.

Makes 4 sodas.

Store any unused syrup in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
