CoronaRita Floats (You’re Welcome, Summer)
July 6, 2012 § Leave a comment
Here’s what happened. Ben & Jerry’s introduced a new Limited Batch flavor, Key Lime Pie. Key Lime Pie just happens to be me and Justin’s favorite dessert. Naturally I shared a mug shot of the pint with him so he could scour the grocery for one. I also suggested we try adding a scoop to a Corona to make some kind of Corona float. Unable to find the ice cream in any of our local freezer aisles, I decided it was time to test out the ice cream maker attachment for Blanche, my KitchenAid mixer.
With Justin, my personal flavor-ologist, at my side with a bag of limes and a knack for twisting (pun definitely intended) raw ingredients into wicked dishes, we took to the kitchen…
And bam! Your summer just got sweeter.
1/2 cup fresh lime juice (approximately 5 limes)
3 T Tequila
2 T Orange Liqueur
1 T Orange Juice
1 1/2 C Confectioner’s Sugar
1 pint heavy cream
Combine all wet ingredients in a medium bowl.
Slowly add confectioner’s sugar, dissolving completely.
Transfer mixture to KitchenAid bowl and mix on “Stir” speed.
Add heavy cream.
Mix for 2-3 minutes until smooth and creamy, but not stiff.
Transfer ice cream batter into KitchenAid freezer bowl.
Mix on “Stir” speed for 20-30 minutes.
Transfer ice cream into a shallow, air-tight container and freeze for 2-4 hours.
Rim margarita glass with raw sugar and sea salt (optional).
Mix some Club Soda, 7-Up and Limeaid in a shaker and fill your margarita glass halfway.
Stick a generous scoop of Margarita ice cream right into the center and then fill the glass to the brim with Corona.
