This bountiful blueberry daiquiri recipe is so delicious you will want to savor it, one refreshing sip at a time!
I had never had a blueberry daiquiri before. Strawberry? Yes. Banana? Yes. Plain? Yes. Blueberry? No.
What the heck?
What . . . have . . . I . . . been . . . thinking?
I hadn’t made many blueberry drinks. In fact, I’ve only blogged about one previously on Dishes Delish: the blueberry mint cosmo. It’s a great drink, but I must say that this blueberry daiquiri beats the cosmo in taste. At least in my humble opinion!
I named it bountiful because of how full of flavor this daiquiri is. It has such a robust blueberry delicious taste that you will be smacking your lips every single time you take a sip.
Oh, wait, I smack my lips every time I eat or drink anything.
Black Thumbs, sort of
Some people have the gift of a green thumb. I was not given that gift. My mom had it and my sister Robyn has it. I’m not sure about the rest of my clan. All I know is that I just don’t have what it takes to keep plants alive, let alone thriving.
People have given me plants for various reasons and the one that fared the best was a bamboo plant. (Thank you, Margaret!) I kept it alive for 2 years, which is an all time record for me. I either water plants too much because I’m paranoid that I’m not giving them enough love or I get a blind spot. Even if the plant is right next to the kitchen sink, I don’t see it, so it doesn’t exist.
The only time I seem to notice it is when it has turned yellow or littered the counter with its dead leaves.
When we lived in Maine, there was a blueberry bush at the side of our house. The first year we were there, we got a great amount of blueberries off that bush. The second year, we had somewhat of a drought and I watered it.
Why, oh why did I water it that year!!? Because after the first year and for the remaining five years we lived there, we never really got blueberries off of it again. And I don’t think it was the birds.
To this day, I look longingly at potted plants when I see them in stores and nurseries. But I know I will just be sentencing them to death if I buy them.
I’ve weakened on occasion. The last time I was fooled into thinking, “This time will be different,” I bought a calla lily plant.
Poor little dead calla lily plant. It was doomed the minute it entered my house.
The Ingredients for the Bountiful Blueberry Daiquiri and the Mixing
We have gold rum, fresh lime juice, simple syrup and a bunch of blueberries.
Let’s get started.
I grab my blender container and measure 2 ounces of rum in it, along with 1 ounce of lime juice and 1/2 ounce simple syrup.
The photo below shows the ingredients in the blender and the blueberries measured out.
I also spear some blueberries and cut a lime wheel for garnish.
Next I add the blueberries into the blender, along with 2 cups of ice cubes. I cap the blender and blend the crap out of the contents.
Time to pour it into the tulip glass and garnish it!
Beautiful! Let’s look at another photo of the blueberry daiquiri!
And now for the vertical view!
I hope you enjoyed this recipe as much as I did drinking it!
