The first time I tasted limoncello, I was in love. I was so smitten I even invented a cocktail drink in its honor. This time, it’s Speedy’s turn to create something memorable with limoncello.

Serve cold and a hot summer afternoon becomes bearable.

Blueberries are expensive and hard to find in this country, Speedy wanted to substitute strawberries but strawberries have disappeared from the market.
