Glasses ready and waiting.

 

Then just mix the lemon juice and sugar with a spoon first to dissolve the sugar. Add the vodka, limoncello and yogurt, and shake to combine to a silky smooth.

 

If you’d like your drinks to be more of a lemon yellow color, add three drops of yellow food color and shake. Not mandatory—it tastes the same either way! Just do it for beautification if you want to.

Tips  

Substitute any citrus vodka you like for the lemon sorbet vodka – lemon, citron or even plain vodka work just as well. Triple sec can be substituted for limoncello if desired.
