Blueberry Lemon CBD Italian Soda
12 ounces fresh or frozen blueberries
½ cup sugar
½ cup water
¼ cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
2 tablespoons half-and-half, if desired
2 droppers CBD tincture
10 ounces lemon flavored sparkling water, chilled
1 scoop blueberry passion fruit sorbet,* optional sidecar
In a medium-sized saucepan, combine blueberries, sugar and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring often. Cool, add lemon juice and puree until smooth. Push through a fine-mesh strainer, if desired. Refrigerate for up to two weeks.
To make a soda, place ¼ cup blueberry-lemon syrup in a tall glass followed by CBD tincture and half- and-half. Slowly add soda and top with sorbet. Add ice if omitting the sidecar. Makes 1 soda, plus extra syrup for about 6 more.
