Summer-Thyme Blueberry Lemonade

This post contains affiliate links.

I’ve got a recipe I’ve wanted to share with you for quite some time now. I call it, Summerthyme Blueberry Lemonade. Nope. That’s not a typo in the spelling of summerthyme. There is thyme in the lemonade. I know what you’re thinking? Thyme in lemonade? Isn’t thyme just for savory dishes?

One taste of this lemonade and you’ll know why it’s right.

You know I like to add a bit of finesse and style to everything so besides tasting great, the lemonade is just pleasing to look at.
