At the beginning of January I went to a friend's house for her birthday party. She made absolutely fantastic Mexican food; quesedillas, chicken fajitas and then margarita ice cream and brownies. We also have lovely mojitos to go with the meal. Ever since then I have been craving margarita ice cream and as the recipe is so easy I had a go at making it myself and it is just so good! It doesn't require any churning, or stirring with a spoon, just mix, stick it in the freezer overnight and eat. Delicious own its own or with brownies!
Margarita Ice Cream (from Nigella Express)
125ml lime juice
2 tbsp tequila
3 tbsp cointreau or triple sec
150g icing sugar
500ml double cream
Pour the lime juice, tequila and cointreau into a bowl and stir in the sugar to dissolve.
Add the cream and then softly whip until thick and smooth not stiff.
Spoon this into an airtight container to freeze overnight. This ice cream does not need softening before serving as it will not freeze too hard.
