Frozen Blackberry Cocktail

Frozen Blackberry Cocktail

Some of my fondest memories are picking blackberries at my grandparent’s house in upstate South Carolina with my family. While I love making a blackberry cobbler or two throughout blackberry season, I also love these frozen blackberry cocktails. We call them frozen blackberry coolers at our house!

Love frozen drinks? Don’t miss my frozen watermelon cocktail and frozen pineapple rum cocktails too!

The ingredients are really simple in this drink! Here are a few ingredient notes below, but as always, you’ll find the full printable recipe card at the end of the blog post!

FROZEN BLACKBERRIES: I like to start out with frozen blackberries in this drink because it just makes a smoother, frozen consistency! If you don’t have frozen blackberries ready to go, you can use thawed, room temperature blackberries but just add a second cup of ice until the consistency is frozen and smooth!

COCONUT MILK: Look for canned coconut milk in the Asian aisle of any grocery store. It adds a creaminess in this cocktail that is just perfect

LIME JUICE: The tart lime juice balances the sweetness from the blackberries and simple syrup.

SIMPLE SYRUP: You can buy it or make it, either way! If you like a sweeter cocktail, add a bit more.

RUM: You can use any variety you have, but I recommend a good silver rum in this cocktail.

    Simple syrup?????

    1. Joni – You can click the link for simple syrup for more details on it. Or you can make your own, you’ll find lots of easy recipes for it online but it’s just sugar & water.

  7. Peter Cossons says:

    Delicious. I swapped the rum for vodka and didn’t use any syrup. I found it was sweet enough without. Lovely on a hot summer day. Thank you.
