the goose loves berry daquiris

Here's our last berry post for awhile. They were all berry good, weren't they? I just think all of the thinks looked berry delicious - the berry cobbler waffles, the berry streusel muffins, and even the raspberry salad. But this one, by far, was the berry best. (Enough of the berry puns? But aren't they so berry punny?)

So why's this one the best? Not because it has berries, but because it has alcohol. Sweet sweet rum. Makes for a lovely afternoon or evening! (Or morning, if you're addicted like that.)

Billy and I decided we couldn't buy six pints of berries without making a mixed berry drink. And that's how our Mixed Berry Daquiri was born!
The recipe is very simple:

Mixed Berry Daquiris for Four (or for two very thirsty people)

--1 cup rum (or more, to taste :) )
--2 cups whole berries (any kind, really)
--1/4 cup powdered sugar
--1/4 cup lemon juice (more or less, depending on how tart you are)
--8 ice cubes

We used boysenberries, blueberries, marionberries, and raspberries.
Put everything in the blender, and blend.

If you followed the directions carefully, you should end up with a bright red, delicious mixture. If you have a husband like my husband, you won't have added enough rum to taste, and so he'll add a little more.

Then pour your daquiris in pretty glasses and stick some berries on the side. Float some blueberries in the center (or halfway sink them, like mine did automatically).
Take several pictures, from various angles, ensuring your white balance is accurate, while your thirsty husband hovers nearby with his mouth watering.

You like how I artistically kept the electrical socket in the background here? Yeah only the best photography from me.

The result? Deee-licious. Refill as necessary, unless you actually had two other people to help you drink these.
