Just a slight twist - I had run out of tequila and used gin in place of it. The recipe was still delicious. I guess you could also substitute another clear spirit (such as vodka) in a pinch.


  • 125 ml Lime juice

  • 2 tablespoons Tequila

  • 3 tablespoons orange liqueur or triple sec

  • 150 g icing sugar

  • 500 ml Double cream


  • 1.

    Pour the lime juice, tequila and orange liqueur or triple sec into a bowl and stir in the icing sugar until it dissolves.

  • 2.

    Add the cream and whisk until the mixture is thick and smooth, but not stiff.

  • 3.

    Spoon into an airtight container and place into the freezer to freeze overnight. This ice cream doesn't need to be taken out to soften before serving, as it won't freeze too hard and melts quickly.
