This recipe is perfect the way it is, but I sometime substitute 1/2 of the half-and-half with plain fat-free yogurt and it is mmmmm good!

This was good, and stands up to its billing as refreshing. Once frozen, it becomes a bit icy, so it is best enjoyed "soft serve" right out of the ice cream maker. Also, the zest gets caught on the dasher in the machine; I might try mixing it in at the end next time. I will try this again, but I will be making a few changes; definitely use full fat half & half (I mixed heavy cream and fat free h&h), add a couple of tablespoons of vodka to keep it soft in the freezer, add 1/4 cup extra sugar.
