Bourbon Frosted Lemondade

One of my favorite summer treats is the Frosted Lemonade from Chic Fil A. It is so light and refreshing and truthfully, it is really simple to replicate at home! The coffee one is really good as well but I mean let's call that what it is...an affogato;) 



I made this a ton last summer. The creaminess of the gelato ( you can also use ice cream or yogurt) with the tartness of the lemonade have me craving it in the heat of North Carolina.  I would make a big batch and keep it in the freezer which is how I ended up making the raspberry frosted pops last year and have continued on this year as well. I mixed it up a bit and played around with my bourbon and with limoncello. and oh. my. word. Divine I say, d.i.v.i.n.e.

If you are able to make your own limoncello, I recommend that because the homemade versions tend to be a little sweeter and I love that about them. However, the ones you can find at your local liquor store will do in a pinch. 

I have started making ice cubes with my lemonade because I prefer that flavor over regular ice cubes, it lends more flavor to this concoction. 

I will give you both versions today, both are similar, one just uses lemonade and the other is a mix of lemonade and limoncello. 





Ingredients
1 cup vanilla gelato
1/2 cup lemonade ice cubes
1/2 cup lemonade
1/2 cup bourbon

blend in a blender, makes two to three servings. 

For the limoncello version
1 cup gelato
1/2 cup lemonade ice cubes
1/4 cup lemonade
1/3 cup limoncello
1/4 cup bourbon

blend and you have no choice but to enjoy. You can also add fresh strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries to this tantalizing summer treat!
