Active Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours 5 minutes
Freezing Time: 2 hours
Servings: 8 scoops (approx)


  • ½ 400 g can condensed milk
  • 240 ml double cream
  • 4 tbsp Tequila
  • 2 tbsp orange liqueur
  • The juice and zest of 2 limes


  • Put the condensed milk (½ can) and double cream (240ml) into a large bowl and whip until they form a stiff peak (easiest if you have an electric mixer) .
  • Gradually add the tequila (4 tbsp), orange liqueur (2 tbsp), lime juice and lime zest (2 limes) and mix by hand until fully combined (add no more than a tbsp at a time and ensure it's fully combined before adding more).
  • Pour into a freezer proof container and freeze until firm (about 2 hours).


The additional liquid content in this ice cream means it should be fine to serve directly from the freezer.
