Sparkling Blueberry Lemonade

Serves:  6
Prep time: 10 minutes

1 cup water
½ cup sugar
1 can Ocean Spray Sparkling Blueberry Pomegranate Juice
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 8 lemons)
3 cups Seltzer Water
Fresh Blueberries

Optional: Add vodka for bit more fun!


  1. Using a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Combine water and sugar to create a simple syrup. Stir until the sugar has dissolved. Let it simmer for about 10 minutes until it thickens slightly. Pour in a cup and chill.
  2. After the sugar is chilled, combine the lemon juice, seltzer water, and the blueberry juice. Then add the simple syrup to taste. (Use less simple syrup if you prefer a more tart taste.) Serve over ice, with fresh blueberries.

Step 2: Pick a Theme

Set the mood with candles, patio lighting or torches. If mosquitos are an issue, don’t forget the mosquito netting or citronella. For an added splash, scatter a few festive touches around the spa.

Decorate your backyard with red, white and blue. Encourage everyone to come dressed in the theme by wearing patriotic colors. For little extra fun, have a contest for the most outrageous attire. Upon arrival greet your guest with a patriotic hat or button.

Regardless if you’re seeking shelter from the sun, or just jazzing up the backyard, embellish your patio with outdoor furniture.

Step 3: Party Games & Activities

Everyone loves party games and activities, so make sure you have plenty planned for everyone to participate in the family fun. Here are a few favorites for everyone to enjoy:  potato sack races, balloon toss, badminton, croquet, frisbee, and volleyball.

If you’d like to go ahead and get those products while you are here, we can deliver those curbside, as well. Please know that our staff have been instructed to leave all chemical purchases outside of the front door. Unfortunately, we will be unable to load in your car at this time. Just let us know that you would like to purchase chemicals when we call with your test results, and we can process your order over the phone. Once we have completed your water test, we will leave a copy of the printed out test results, along with your empty test bottle, in the marked bin outside the front door.

Due to the limitations of staff and anticipated demand for this service, we ask that you please arrive on-time for your scheduled appointment to ensure that we can have enough time for a complete and accurate consultation.
