What is Limoncello?
I love Limoncello and if you haven’t tried it you really should as it’s delicious alone! Adding it to this refreshing Limoncello strawberry lemonade just takes it to another level!
An Italian liqueur made from lemon zest, alcohol, sugar, and water, Limoncello is usually served chilled after a meal to aid digestion. Known for its bright yellow color it has a sweet, citrus, tart flavor and a smooth and refreshing taste.
You can find Limoncello in most local liqueur stores.

How to Make Strawberry Limoncello Lemonade
Slice about 4 fresh strawberries being sure to keep one or two for a garnish!
Place your ice and strawberries in a tall glass. I like to muddle my strawberries a bit with a spoon and ice. To muddle the strawberries, lightly press them against the sides of the glass to release some of the strawberry juices.
Pour the Limoncello over the strawberries and ice, followed by the lemonade, and stir to combine.
Garnish with a fresh strawberry and add a straw! Enjoy!
