Bombshells and Blueberry Puppy Dogs

Have I mentioned that I am a Bombshell yet?

Bookshelf Bombshells is the brainchild of several close friends who have a few crucial things in common: they all read, they all have opinions, and they all have breasts. Clearly, the way forward would be to share all of those things with the Internet (metaphorically so, for that last bit). Thus was born Bookshelf Bombshells, book reviews and author interviews by beautiful, brainy women. Our staff of literate ladies are hot for everything between the covers, from vicious vampires to juicy memoirs, from hard science to soft romance. We lust for the well-written word.

I was tickled when I was invited to be the Food & Wine Book Reviewer.  A chance to read  cookbooks, foodie memoirs, and drink guides before they are released?  The opportunity to test new recipes before their collections hit the bookshelves? Oh, yeah…I did not have to be asked twice.  I am also the reigning Copy Kitten — which basically means I (along with several other brilliant women) get to proof everyone else’s work. Rather amusing, considering half the time I barely have the chance to proof my own words before I throw them up on this site.

Of course, I chose to test out the recipe featuring one of my all-time favorite indulgences, limoncello.

10cl limoncello
2cl lemon juice
2cl simple syrup (sugar and water mix)
1 cup of blueberries
10cl carbonated water
A delightful frozen cocktail for hot summer afternoons. In a blender or with a hand blender mix the blueberries with lemon juice, simple syrup, and limoncello until they form a rough slush. Add the carbonated water and freeze for two hours. When ready to serve thaw for twenty minutes and spoon the icy slushy mixture into tall glass. Drink with a straw and maybe garnish with a sprinkle of chopped blueberries.
