Tequila Whipped Cream

tequila whipped cream

Sometimes I like to make a pie.  Or a lot of pies.  Like, a week’s worth of pies.

And sometimes I like to make fancy whipped creams to put on those pies, like this tequila whipped cream!  It is amazing all on it’s own (I dare you not to have a taste when you make it), but it’s also the perfect pairing with tropical fruits like pineapples and mangos.  You could even use it for an elegant dessert of vanilla pound cake with a tropical fruit compote.

But my favorite is still this whipped cream atop a gorgeous piece of key lime pie.  I seriously can’t get enough citrus in my life…and this is why I belong in Arizona!

My love of tequila stems from my love of a classic margarita, especially in the summertime.  The flavor profile is so lovely, especially paired with the traditional salt and lime.  And it’s that flavor that really comes through in this tequila whipped cream, very clean and bright.

Equipment Needed:

Note: Make sure the cream, tequila, and lime juice (if using) are very cold.  This ensures that the mixture whips up nicely.
