Begin by making a simple syrup, combining the sugar and 1 cup of the water in a small saucepan. Bring to a gentle simmer over low heat, just until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from the heat to cool.
Cut each lemon in half and squeeze over a measuring cup, until you have 1 cup of lemon juice.
Add the simple syrup and lemon juice to a large pitcher, followed by the remaining 4 cups of water. Stir and adjust to taste, adding a few tablespoons of sugar or the juice of half a lemon if it is either too sweet or too tart.
Add in the 2 cups of blueberries and the basil leaves and stir. Use the back of a long wooden spoon to squeeze the blueberries against the side of the pitcher, breaking up some of the whole blueberries.
Immediately before serving, add the liter of seltzer to the pitcher.
Serve in a highball glass filled with ice and the liquor of your choosing.
