LLB cocktail
The Limoncello LLB LLB stands for lemon, lime and bitters — we’ve swapped the lemonade for Amalfi coast-made limoncello to add a little extra kick. Get the Limoncello LLB drink recipe » Mackenzie Smith

LLB—short for lemon, lime, and bitters, is a popular soft drink available throughout the Caribbean and Australia. Bottled by House of Angostura in Trinidad & Tobago, the drink is widely available in grocery stores or made to order at the bar with lemonade, muddled lime or lime cordial, and angostura bitters. Swapping the lemonade for limoncello makes the drink a bit more fun without changing the refreshing island flavor. This recipe was adapted from a cocktail created by mixologist Philip Duff.
