Sip on summer vibes with our Frozen Blackberry Cocktail! Packed with frozen blackberries, creamy coconut milk, a splash of lime juice, and a cheeky kick of rum, it’s the ultimate chill-out drink for those lazy, hazy days.
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!
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.
So next time you need a little frozen concoction, I hope you’ll try this Frozen Blackberry Cocktail! They’re sweet but have a little touch of tart too! You can even jazz it up with a sugar rim if you want to get extra fancy ;) Here’s to summer!
