A cocktail packed with antioxidants? This blueberry daiquiri certainly fits that bill, and I’m all for it!
• ½ cup (100g) sugar
• 1 pint (335 g) blueberries
• 2 cups (480 ml) rum
• ¼ cup (60 ml) fresh lime juice
• 2 cups (480 ml) ice
In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the sugar and ½ cup (120 ml) water and bring to a low boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
Add the blueberries and reduce the heat to a simmer. Use a wooden spoon to crush the berries, allowing their juices to release, and continue to simmer for 20 minutes. Press the berry mixture through a fine-mesh sieve set over a bowl and discard the solids.
In a blender, combine the berry syrup, rum, and lime juice. Add the ice and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
