Recipe Notes

If using a metal cocktail shaker, wrap a cloth around it before shaking. The metal gets extremely cold and this keeps any liquid from seeping out.

*Limoncello Margaritas can be made up to 1 month before serving. Pour margaritas in a freezer container, cover tightly and freeze. When ready to serve, remove from freezer 15-20 minutes before serving.
