In 1 quart glass measuring cup, combine sugar, 2 tablespoons of the blueberries
and 1/2 cup water. Microwave on high until hot, about 1 minute. Stir until sugar
dissolves. Add lemon juice and enough water to make 1 quart. Chill.
Fill tall glasses with ice cubes, add chilled blueberry mixture and remaining
berries, dividing equally. Garnish with lemon slices if desired.
To make Blueberry ice cubes: Place 3 berries in each of 12 ice cube cups.
Fill with water and freeze. 36 berries equals about 1/4 cup.
Yield: 1 quart (4 one-cup servings)
