Cinco de Mayo requires….

A tad of Margarita Ice Cream…
:: cha cha cha ::

Margarita Ice Cream
makes about 3 cups
1/4 cup Triple Sec or Cointreau
1/4 cup Tequila
4-6 medium to large limes
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups heavy cream, chilled
2 Tablespoons orange juice concentrate
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
In a small saucepan, bring the Triple Sec and Tequila to a simmer. Reduce to 2 tablespoons. Transfer the mixture to a small bowl and refrigerate until well chilled.
Finely grate the zest from two of the limes. Juice 1/2 cup lime juice from the the zested limes and the additional remaining limes. Whisk the sugar into the lime juice. Add the heavy cream, concentrate, salt, and chilled reduction. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's directions. (The mixture will be just thick, not solid.) Transfer the mixture to a freezer safe container and freeze until firm; several hours and preferably overnight. (Ice cream will be of soft-serve consistency.)
Scoop into bowls or, for effect, small dishes rimmed with lime juice and kosher salt. Enjoy!

Oh my goodness, you just changed my day! I LOVE ice cream and never thought of combining it with my favorite drink (which is silly since I make a version with cheesecake and pie). A million thank yous for this!!!!

By the way, have you ever posted where you live, meaning city/country? I am a tropical girl also and was just curious. - Vikki
