How to make it

  • Bring a few inches of water in a saucepan to a simmer over medium heat. Meanwhile, in a heatproof mixing bowl that will fit into the pan (forming a double boiler), beat yolks until light and fluffy.
  • Mix in zest, cream and milk.
  • Fit bowl into pan (water should not touch bottom of bowl).
  • Cook over simmering water, stirring almost constantly, until mixture coats the back of a spoon (160 degrees).
  • Remove from heat; set bowl in a sink or larger bowl filled with ice water to cool mixture quickly.
  • In another bowl, combine condensed milk, lime juice and tequila; mix well. Add to cream mixture; mix well. Refrigerate until mixture reaches 40 degrees.
  • Transfer to an ice-cream maker; freeze according to manufacturer's directions. Makes about 2 quarts; 8 servings.
