Jillian Chantal, Bushwackers and Surf Break

Many, many thanks to Darlene for inviting me over today to talk about Surf Break, my story based on Pensacola Beach, a place we both love. I decided to share a favorite cocktail that Pensacola is famous for (now, gramatically, I should say, “for which Pensacola is famous”, but dang, that sounds formal, doesn’t it?) Anyhow, you didn’t come  here for an English lesson, did you? Heck no, bring on the drink recipe, Jillian, you evil soul, you.

Okay, okay – here’s the recipe- This is the standard recipe for a Bushwacker but I kind of like adding some Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum (doesn’t hurt that the Captain in the commercials is a hottie) and maybe a banana (for the nutritional value,of course).

Ingredients:

2 0z Coffee Liqueur

1 oz dark rum

1 oz Creme de Cacao

4 ozs half and half

4 oz coconut cream

Vanilla ice cream (3-6 ozs depending on how strong you want it)

Pour all into a blender. Add two cups of ice and blend til mixed. Serve in tall glass.

And there you go, a Bushwacker. Watch out, they sneak up on you since you think you’re drinking a milkshake.

My hero in this story, Pete, is a cop who tells the heroine he’s going to work security at a Bushwacker Festival being held at club on the beach. I couldn’t very well write a Pensacola Beach story without a Bushwacker, could I? After all, I could be hauled out of town on a stick for that.

I hope you enjoy your Bushwacker and maybe curl up with my lil ole story while you drink it.

Blurb: Her past life as a professional surfer comes back to the fore when Juliette Mackey spends her summer break surfing the Gulf of Mexico. She left the pro-circuit when her former husband broke her heart. Returning to her beach roots, she signs on to work part time at a local burger joint to have the funds to rent a cottage on the shore. While working there, she meets a local cop named Pete Schwartz who is determined to let the world know about her surfing skills and force the younger crowd to acknowledge her gifts.

Attracted to Pete but wary of risking her heart again, Juliette resists Pete’s advances and wants no part of his plans to have her display her surf skills. It’s a battle of wills that Pete is determined to win. More importantly, he’s on a mission to break the wall Juliette has built around her heart.

Check It Out – Surfer Bride 2/22/11

My friend Jillian Chantal’s second book is going to be released on the 22nd of this month.  How exciting is that???  Jillian is going to be dropping by to visit with us some time before then or perhaps she’ll send a dashing hero or beautiful blonde surfer girl.  In the meantime check out the trailer. 

Totally Hot, Totally Shirtless – BRADLEY COOPER

Okay folks, I am crushing on Bradley Cooper.  Watched  The Hangover and He’s Just Not That In to You this weekend and I just have to say “OH MY”  Bradley Cooper is hot.   Going to have to find Alias on DVD to check him out in that and plan to watch the A-Team some time very soon.   So here for your viewing pleasure (and mine) Bradley Cooper, Totally Hot and Totally Shirtless. 

Think this may be my new favorite Hunk in Trunks pic.

Thinking surfing could be fun to see sights such as this.

Have to say I loved Dirk Benedict when I was 17 and the A-Team came on originally, but I think Bradley is perfect casting for the 21st Century version of the A-Team.
