Limoncello Milkshakes

Limoncello is a lemon liqueur produced in the south of Italy, mainly in the region around the Gulf of Naples and the coast of Amalfi and Islands of Ischia and Capri , but also in Sicily and on Sardinia. It is made from lemon rinds, alcohol, water, and sugar. ~Wikipedia

I ran across a great suggestion from Divina Cucina's Over a Tuscan Stove. She wrote of a combo she made of vanilla ice cream and Limoncello. I tried mixing the Limoncello and ice cream together and that was incredibly good -- tart and delicious. I then pulled out the blender and made a batch of Limoncello milkshakes that turned out great as well.

If you are able to get your hands on a bottle of Limoncello *please* try this recipe! Or, make a homemade version!
