  • Pinch salt
  • 225l whole milk

  • 125g unsalted butter, melted and cooled

  3. Whisk together the milk, lemon juice, whisky, butter, honey, lemon zest and egg yolks, then stir into the flour mixture.
  4. Beat the egg whites with an electric whisk at a medium speed until frothy. Increase the speed to medium-high and add the sugar, a tablespoon at a time, beating until the whites can form stiff peaks.
