Makes 1 x 250ml jar. 

100ml Gin

100g Sugar

Rind and juice of 2 Lemons

50g Butter

2 eggs plus 1 yolk

Zest and juice the lemons into a glass bowl. Add sugar, butter, and gin. Make a Bain Marie by putting water in a saucepan, simmering and covering with the glass bowl, stir until the butter is melted.

Lemon Curd Recipe

Beat the eggs and whisky into the mixture. 

I CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH (cause I had to throw a batch out), that you need to keep this on a LOW heat (or you get lemony scrambled eggs). 

Gin Lemon Curd

Cook for 15 minutes, until the mixture is glossy, smooth and coats the back of a spoon. Chill.
