oz lemon sorbet vodka, chilled
carton (6 oz) Yoplait® Original lemon burst yogurt
drops yellow food coloring (optional)
lemon wedge for rimming glasses (optional)
Colored sugar for rimming glasses (optional)
lemon slices for garnish (optional)
Begin by gathering your ingredients.
Optional: Rub a lemon wedge around edge of 2 glasses, then dip rims in colored sugar. Set aside.
Add lemon juice and superfine sugar to a cocktail shaker and stir with a spoon until sugar is dissolved. Add vodka, limoncello and yogurt, and shake until mixture is combined, smooth and creamy. Add food coloring (if desired) and shake until well blended.
Add ice to halfway in the shaker and shake about 10 times to chill. Strain into prepared cocktail glasses. Garnish with lemon slices if desired and serve immediately.
- 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.
