White Chocolate Margarita Mousse

Author: Canadian Living

This light, tangy dessert flavoured with tequila and lime makes a refreshingly special finish to any festive meal. For that extra flourish, serve the mousse garnished with finely grated lime rind in sugared margarita or martini glasses.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lime rind
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons tequila
  • 3 oz white chocolate chopped
  • 3/4 cups whipping cream

Method

In heatproof bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, whisk together eggs, egg yolks, sugar, lime rind and juice, and tequila; cook, whisking often, until thickened and mixture falls in ribbons when whisk is lifted, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat.

Add white chocolate; stir until melted. Pour into clean bowl; place plastic wrap directly on surface. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days.)

In bowl, whip cream; fold half into lime mixture. Fold in remaining whipped cream just until combined. Spoon into glasses or dessert dishes. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.)
