Rum Runner Frozen Daiquiri

Blackberry Frozen Rum Runner

If you're looking for an icy cocktail that packs a delightfully fruity punch, give a rum runner frozen daiquiri a try.

The Frozen Daiquiri Craze

Frozen daiquiris aren't anything new, but they have become exceptionally popular in recent years. The frozen strawberry daiquiri is practically a phenomenom in its own right. However, variety is the spice of life, and the frozen rum runner is a delicious alternative.

To make any frozen daiquiri, including the rum runner, it's easier to use cracked ice in your blender to get just the right consistency. You can increase the amount of ice you use if you want a thicker cocktail that you can leisurely spoon from your glass, but most of these drinks are traditionally served as a loose slush.

Rum Runner Frozen Daiquiri Recipe

Although a typical daiquiri only uses rum, this drink incorporates flavored brandy and liqueur for a real flavor boost.

  • 2 ounces light rum
  • 1/2 ounce of blackberry brandy
  • 1/2 ounce of banana liqueur
  • 1/4 ounce of lime juice
  • 1/4 ounce of pineapple juice
  • 1/2 ounce of grenadine
  • 1 splash of sweet and sour mix (optional)
  • 1/2 cup of cracked ice

Pour all the ingredients into a blender and blend them just long enough to form a slushy mix. You can always add a few whole blackberries on top for a sweet garnish.

Frozen Rum Runner Variations

For every great cocktail, there are always variations that add a slightly different twist to the flavor. Give the following recipes a try.

  • 1/2 ounce of grenadine syrup
  • 1/4 cup fof resh blackberries (Add more if you like.)
  • 1/2 cup of cracked ice (Add more if you want a frostier drink.)

Pour all the ingredients into a blender and blend them until a nice frozen slush forms. Pour the beverage into your favorite cocktail glass, and drink up.

Commercial Rum Runner Mix

Bars and restaurants sometimes rely on commercial cocktail mixes to serve a particular drink in large quantities, especially if it's a popular cocktail that a lot of people want to order. They often use a product like Rum Runner Frozen Daiquiri Drink Mix, which is available in one-gallon bottles of concentrate. The mix is easily combined with water, ice and rum to whip up a large batch of drinks all at once.

Even though many cocktail enthusiats shudder at the idea of using a mix, this rum runner mix uses fruit juices rather than relying solely on flavored syrups that can leave an unpleasant aftertaste.
