Blueberry Coupe Pie in a coupe next to a bottle of Mad River Distillers Vanilla Rum


If you find yourself with a pint (or more) of fresh blueberries in your fridge, put them to good use in this Blueberry Coupe Pie! A little bit of our Vanilla Rum in blueberry pie filling is served in a beautiful coupe, then topped with whipped cream and lemon zest. It’s the perfect date night dessert.


  • 1 pint of fresh blueberries
  • 2 tbsp sugar (for blueberry pie filling)
  • ½ tsp fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp Mad River Distillers Vanilla Rum
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tbsp sugar (for graham cracker crust)
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • Whipped cream
  • Fresh lemon zest


  1. Rinse the blueberries, then place them in a small saucepan over low heat. 
  2. Add sugar and lemon juice to the saucepan, and stir occasionally on simmer until blueberries soften and begin to burst.
  3. While the blueberries are on simmer, prepare the graham cracker crust. In a small bowl, combine the graham cracker crust, melted butter, and sugar. Mix ingredients together, then set them aside.
  4. Add cornstarch to the pan and stir into the blueberry mixture. Continue to cook until it thickens (at least a few minutes), then remove from the heat.
  5. Stir the Vanilla Rum into the blueberry mixture, then allow the pie filling to cool.
  6. While the blueberry pie filling cools, press the graham cracker crust into the bottom of 6 coupe glasses. (You can also use rocks glasses or other small dishes.)
  7. When the blueberry pie filling has cooled, spoon the mixture into the glasses over the pie crust.
  8. When ready to serve, zest a fresh lemon. Add whipped cream on top of each blueberry pie, then sprinkle the lemon zest on top of the whipped cream, and enjoy!


  1. Depending on what flavor profiles you prefer, our First Run Rum or Maple Cask Rum would make good alternatives to our Vanilla Rum in this recipe.
  2. These pies contain alcohol and are intended for adults 21+ only.
