Ready In:


  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons simple syrup (or sugar)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup chilled limoncello (or lemonade, regular or sparkling)

  • To make simple syrup combine equal parts water and sugar stirred over heat and brought to a boil, then cooled to room temperature.
  • In a blender, whirl blueberries, simple syrup, and lemon juice with just enough limoncello to make a smooth slush.
  • (For a firmer slush, pour into a small bowl and freeze for up to 2 hours.
  • To store up to 2 weeks, put slush in a resealable freezer bag, seal, and freeze. To use, let stand at room temperature a few minutes to soften slightly.).
  • Divide berry slush among 4 tall glasses (8 to 12oz. size), add equal portions limoncello; fill with club soda.
  • Garnish with fresh berries on skewers; swizzle as you sip.

The picture above is of my daughter and me, taken about 35 years after the photo she posted on her Zaar page (WeBees); I’m the one in the goofy hat in her picture and she’s the one on the left in my picture. Most of my pre-married life was spent in Northern California in the San Francisco Bay Area with all the wonderful produce, sea food and wines that the region offers. Five of my teenage years were spent in West Africa with my family (medical missionaries). On our way back to the US we traveled extensively throughout Europe and after marrying my Navy husband, we were moved to Asia. All this said because these travel experiences greatly influenced my interest in cooking and willingness to try new foods. I’ve been with Zaar for about two years and have enjoyed trying new recipes and learning about the person who posted it. There are some crazy, wonderful and talented people out there, not to mention knowledgeable and gracious. It’s been great fun participating in the “Tag” and “Swap” games. <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><a href="¤t=tish3.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Recipezaar Challenge 2008"></a><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> Like many other Zaarites, I’ve collected hundreds of cookbooks. My favorites are from places that I‘ve visited around the world as well as my first, given to me by my mother when I went off to college - “The Graham Kerr Cookbook” by the Galloping Gourmet. My oldest cookbook was given to me by my grandmother – “The Boston-School Cook Book” by Fannie Merritt Farmer circa 1896. I’m an Interior Designer but also taught Weight Watchers for about twenty years. It’s tough loving to cook and bake and still keep at a healthy weight!
