Margarita Ice Cream

What is better than a glass of margarita? A glass of margarita ice cream, of course! Enjoy your favorite cocktail without getting a buzz. Refreshing and delicious, this homemade ice cream is the perfect treat for adults after a long workday. With a glass of this margarita ice cream, every hour is a happy hour!  Best of all, it’s super easy to make – no ice cream maker needed.

 

On hot summer nights, I like to sip on my dinner. I sit in my backyard with a cold glass of dinner in one hand and my camera in another and observe dozens of butterflies, birds, and squirrels chased by our dogs.

 

This summer just took a whole new level when I discovered Margarita Ice Cream. Oh summer, I love you so! What better dessert to accompany those nights than this one? Ok, maybe rum and raisin ice cream is a good substitute. Anything with booze, really. Did you know you can make frozen yogurt with wine and Greek yogurt? That one is going on my to-try list for sure.

 

Homemade ice cream is so easy to make and this one was way too easy to eat.  This express dessert-delirious should not be served to underage children. More for us, right? Serve this melt-in-your-mouth margarita to your Cinco de Mayo party guests for dessert. A great finish to a great event!

ice cream with tequila and lime

 

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup condensed milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons triple sec (such as Cointreau)
  • 2 tablespoons tequila
  • Lime zest
  • sugar or salt for garnish

 

Directions:

  1. Put the milk, cream, lime juice, triple sec, and tequila into a large bowl and whisk until soft peaks form. It should be thick and smooth but not too stiff.
  2. Scrape into an airtight container to freeze overnight. Because of alcohol, it will not freeze too hard and it will melt quickly.
  3. Serve in margarita glasses with sugar/salt dipped rims. Garnish with lime zest. Cheers!

    Jas – this ice-cream sounds delicious and your pictures are making my mouth water… SO, do you think you could replace the condensed milk with maybe coconut milk? Thanks for sharing your great recipes each week at #TuneInThursday

      Hi, Debbie! Believe it or not, I never used coconut milk so I can’t say for sure if it would work. If it has the thickness of condensed milk, I don’t see why not. 🙂

      Hi, Lisa! I’m sure you can adjust the recipe for the ice cream maker, but I have never used one so unfortunately, I can’t vouch for it. Sorry!
