Immunity Booster Syrup

There are a lot of good vitamins and anti-oxidants in this syrup.

1 pint blueberries
½ c. carrot juice, preferably fresh
½ c. unsweetened purple grape juice
Juice of ½ lemon
¼ c. honey
1 cinnamon stick, broken into small pieces
1 inch length of fresh ginger root, coarsely chopped

Combine the berries, carrot juice, grape juice, lemon juice, and honey in a small saucepan.  Mash the mixture with a vegetable masher, then stir in the cinnamon and ginger.  Heat over low heat, stirring often, until the berries have released their liquid.  Let cool to room temperature and strain; there should be about 2 cups of syrup.

To serve, mix equal parts of syrup and seltzer.  Syrup will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
