4 cups water
2 cups sugar
Juice and zest of 8 lemons
1 cup blackberries
1 cup blueberries
Make simple syrup with the sugar and half the water. Bring to a boil in a saucepan and continue to boil for 3 minutes.
Add the zest and lemon juice and the rest of the water. Let cool to room temperature. If in a hurry add less water and 1 cup of ice.
Place the berries in a blender and blend until pulverized. Mix with the juice and strain. Chill before serving or serve with extra ice.
