Margarita ice cream

Perk up plain old ice cream with all the flavours of a classic margarita.

  • Preparation Time20 mins
  • Serves6
  • DifficultyEasy
110ml lime juice
2 tbsp tequila
3 tbsp orange liqueur, such as Cointreau or Triple Sec
280g powdered sugar
450ml heavy cream
1) Pour the lime juice, tequila and orange liqueur into a bowl and stir in the sugar to dissolve.

2) Add the cream and then softly whip until thick and smooth but not stiff. Spoon into an airtight container to freeze overnight.

3) This ice cream does not need ripening (softening before serving), as it will not freeze too hard and melts speedily and voluptuously.
