Blueberry-Mint Frozen Gimlet

Rhea’s Rundown

Kick back and relax with this 4-minute blueberry delight. Blueberries, mint, simple syrup, and fresh lime juice combine with gin for the perfect lazy Sunday afternoon concoction. The recipe requires a Magic Bullet, but if you don’t have one you can use a regular blender and start out with 2/3 cups of ice, adding more as needed. The recipe notes advise using smaller pieces of ice; if you don’t have smaller pieces handy place your ice cubes in a bag and crush them before blending.

Ingredients – Serves 1
  • ½ cup fresh blueberries 
  • 6 mint leaves
  • 1 ½ ounces dry London-style gin
  • ¾ ounce simple syrup
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice 
  • Ice to fill cup


1. Load ingredients into the 8-ounce cup in the order specified (it's important to really fill the cup up).
