What Do I Need To Add To My Grocery List For Limoncello Lemon Slushie?
For this recipe you'll need:
How Do You Make Limoncello Lemon Slushies?
- Make your limoncello syrup. It's so simple! Combine lemon juice, water, sugar, and lemon zest in a medium saucepan.
- Heat over medium-high just until the sugar dissolves. This is my favorite ZESTER for the job.
- 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.
- After the syrup has chilled completely chilled you need to make your slushie ice! You can use your high powered blender (my blendtec works amazing!) or a snow cone machine. Add ice to blender jar.
- Blend until it is the consistency of snow.
- Pile snow ice in each cup,and pour the lemoncello syrup over. Garnish with Lemons, and serve!
DO YOU HAVE A BLENDER RECOMMENDATION?
We are die hard Blendtec fans around here. I’ve been using the brand for years and years and I’ll never own another blender. Many years ago my husband offered to buy me a designer bag for my birthday, or a Blendtec. I chose the Blendtec blender and I’ve never looked back. It is truly something in my kitchen that I used every day. A high powered blender is unmatched to other blenders. You can blend and emulsify like a pro.
