  • 2 c. Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 c. Half-and-Half
  • 1 1/5 c. Sugar
  • 5 Egg Yolks
  • 1/2 c. Fresh Lemon Juice
  • Zest of Three Lemons
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Pinch Kosher Salt
  • 6 Pack of Ale-8-One
  • Whipped Cream to taste


  • Over low heat, combine heavy whipping cream, half-and-half, sugar, lemon zest; allow to simmer, stirring, until sugar is dissolved. This will take roughly 5 minutes.
  • Remove cream from heat, cover the pan, and steep for 5 minutes.
  • Put the cream back on the heat, allowing it to simmer.
  • Place egg yolks in a bowl & beat until smooth. Gradually add a little of the warm cream mixture to the eggs (up to roughly 1/2 c., a couple of tablespoons at a time) bringing them up to temperature without cooking them.
  • Combine the warm egg mixture with the large pot of cream.
  • Add the lemon juice and vanilla extract; cook/stir until the mixture coats the back of your spatula. This will take 3-5 minutes.
  • Transfer to a freezer-safe dish and freeze overnight.
  • The next day, add the lemon ice cream to a mason jar. Slowly pour Ale-8-One over the ice cream, making a float. If needed, add more as you eat. Top with whipped cream.
  • Enjoy!
