  2. Push through a sieve, then leave the liquid to cool
  3. Store for up to a week in a 250ml sterilised bottle (wash it in hot, soapy water first, then put in the oven on a low heat for 10-15 mins)

For the mocktail:

  1. Pare the zest of the other lemon and set aside. Squeeze all the lemon juice into a jug, then pour in 100ml blueberry syrup, or more to taste, and stir to combine
  2. Add lots of ice and twists of lemon zest, then top up with sparkling water
