Limoncello Lemonade Icee

A legit lemoncello drink is a lemon syrup + alcohol + lemon peel left to marinate in the syrup and served very very cold-like, you store it in the freezer until serving time. This is a twist on that- its a delicious twist on the drink. My kids love to drink it all year round, especially on hot summer days. We call it limoncello lemonade icee. It’s made very similar to the real limoncello BUT sans the alcohol.

How to make limoncello lemonade icee

Step 1:

Make your limoncello syrup. It’s so simple! Boil the lemon, sugar and water for about 5 minutes so the sugar dissolves and the liquid becomes slightly thicker syrup. Now add the lemon peel! This is my favorite ZESTER for the job.

Step 2:

Let the syrup come to room temp and then it needs to chill. It’s’ great to make this a day ahead to let the lemon peel flavors and oils soak into the syrup.

Step 3:

After the syrup has chilled completely chilled you need to make your icee ice! You can use your high powered blender (my blendtec works amazing!) or a snow cone machine.

    1. Do you think it is scratched? Mine isn’t as clear as a new one…. maybe its the detergent? or you know how some waters can leave like a white film on dishes? MAybe try lemi-shine (found by the dish soap and dish washer detergent) I know what you are talking about though! I typically wash mine by hand with a soft srub brush, and occasionally throw it in the dishwasher with lemi shine and dish detergent. I’m curious if lemi shine will help? If so let me know!
