The Blackberry Daiquiri is a fruity twist on the classic Daiquiri, a cocktail that originated in Cuba in the late 19th century. The original Daiquiri was a simple blend of rum, lime juice, and sugar, served over crushed ice. The Blackberry Daiquiri adds fresh blackberries to the mix, creating a cocktail that is both sweet and tart, with a beautiful deep purple color. This cocktail is perfect for those who enjoy fruity, refreshing drinks with a bit of a kick.

How Blackberry Daiquiri Tastes?

The Blackberry Daiquiri is a delightful blend of sweet and tart, with the blackberries providing a fruity freshness that is perfectly balanced by the sharpness of the lime juice. The rum adds a warm, smooth undertone that rounds out the flavors beautifully.

Interesting facts about Blackberry Daiquiri

  • The Blackberry Daiquiri is a variation of the classic Daiquiri, which was reportedly a favorite of writer Ernest Hemingway.
  • The cocktail's deep purple color comes from the fresh blackberries.
  • Despite its fruity flavor, the Blackberry Daiquiri is a strong cocktail thanks to the rum.



10 juicy blackberries are muddled to provide the signature fruity flavor and deep purple hue. Miss out on these, and you'll be hosting a very berry sad cocktail party. But if you're feeling adventurous, swap them for raspberries for a tangy twist!

2 oz of rum are just the right amount to give it a decent kick without knocking your socks off. If you go overboard, you'll be sailing rough seas of boozy flavor. Opt for a good white rum for a clean taste, or try a spiced rum to warm things up.

Lime Juice

1 oz keeps it real zest-y! Lime juice adds a tart edge, slicing through the sweetness. Skip it, and the drink loses its tangy backbone. No lime, no crime? More like no lime, big crime!

Simple Syrup

1 oz to sweeten the deal without a cavity search. Forget this, and you might pucker up more than you bargained for. If you prefer a natural sweetener, raw honey can be a delightful alternative.

1 cup to chill, not to dilute. The right amount of ice will keep your drink cold and refreshing. Too little and you'll be drinking lukewarm regret. Too much and you'll drown the flavor.

Place your chosen strainer on top of the shaker or mixing glass, ensuring a secure fit. Pour the cocktail into a glass through the strainer, which will catch solid ingredients and ice. If double straining, hold the fine mesh strainer between the shaker and the glass.
