A delicious lemony treat without the bite of regular limoncello. This makes great Christmas gifts!

This drink keeps for a long time; just like other milk based liqueurs (ie. Baileys, Kahlua). I prefer to keep mine in the freezer or the fridge just out of preference

This is great. Very easy to make but it does make alot and since it's largely milk, you need to be sure to have some drinkers around!
