Grown-Up Frozen Lemonade


If you’re like me, you have wondered what to do with that bottle of limoncello sitting in your cabinet… or better yet, freezer.  Skimming the pages of this past June’s issue of Coastal Living, I was thrilled to discover this ultra-refreshing recipe using limoncello as it’s featured ingredient.  I recommend doubling the recipe and possibly even adding a bit of water (or more ice) if too sweet.
