6 servings (serving size: 2/3 cup)

The Simple Syrup recipe makes enough for two batches of blueberry daiquiris. The syrup is also handy for sweetening iced tea.

How to Make It

Combine first 3 ingredients in a blender, and process until smooth. Strain mixture through a sieve into a bowl, and discard solids. Combine blueberry mixture, 3 cups crushed ice, rum, and lime juice in blender, and process until smooth.

DELICIOUS! Blueberries are a big crop here and I wanted to find another way to use those in the freezer. This is it! Instead of 3/4 cup simple syrup, I used 1/2 cup syrup + 1/4 cup blueberry schnapps. Perfect!!!!

These are wonderful. Way better than using a bottled mix. They take a little time, but they're worth it. I used Captain Morgan rum - perfect. Cheers! Step-by-step photos on my blog: http://tinyurl.com/26qqh5j

Made using farmers-market blackberries & prepped syrup/fruit in the morning. Super-easy to finish in the evening. Served in martini glasses with a very thin slice of lime floating on top.

I used brown sugar and a nice dark rum along with blueberries picked that morning and I thought it turned out excellently. Everyone wanted seconds including my bartender-friend who was over for dinner. It was pretty easy with the only tough part being straining the skins/seeds out which was time consuming because my wire mesh strainer was a bit too fine. I will likely make it again.
