This rendition of homemade lemonade is tart but you can add more sugar to taste.  The splash of blueberry purée is a perfect balance to the tartness of the lemon.  (You can also add another fruit purée of your choice, such as strawberries and/or raspberries for homemade strawberry-raspberry lemonade).
