I'm a Limoncello-aholic. What kind are you?

I made this with my homemade limoncello, and it was delicious, but very strong (I am a lightweight when it comes to alcohol). I might try this next time with equal parts vodka and limoncello. I had a vanilla simple syrup on hand so that is what I used. Thanks for posting!
