Limoncello is an obvious choice because of the lemon flavor of the liqueur. If you prefer, you could use vodka (plain or lemon) or white rum instead. However, that gives the drink more of a bite than the limoncello.

In commercially available spiked lemonade, like Simply Spiked, it’s most often vodka. For this homemade alcoholic lemonade, you can control what it’s spiked with and limoncello is the best!
