This is a terrific, easy, summer dessert for a crowd, especially if you make it ahead of time and use store-bought pound cake.

Beverage pairing: Ramos Pinto Porto White, Portugal. It may come from the land of deep, inky, red port wines, but white port is a different creature: bright, clean, and crisp with citrus and flowers. It’s often served before a meal with tonic as an apéritif, but it makes a lively dessert wine too, served chilled or on the rocks with a generous orange twist. Its flavors will animate the blueberries and lemon juice without getting in the way.
