Strawberry-Rhubarb Semifreddo

Kind of like a rich ice cream with the texture of a mousse, semifreddo is a sweet treat. This recipe calls for limoncello (a deliciously boozy lemon liqueur), but sub for lemon juice if little ones are attending this party. Get the recipe at Chatelaine: Strawberry-Rhubarb Semifreddo
