Summer-Thyme Blueberry Lemonade

I’ve got a recipe I’ve wanted to share with you for quite some time now. I call it, Summerthyme Blueberry Lemonade. Nope. That’s not a typo in the spelling of summerthyme. There is thyme in the lemonade. I know what you’re thinking? Thyme in lemonade? Isn’t thyme just for savory dishes?
