In a nonreactive metal bowl combine yolks, sugar and lime juice. Place bowl over a pan of simmering water and begin to whisk. Be sure bowl is not touching water. Continue to whisk until the mixture reaches a temperature of 166 degrees (on a candy thermometer). Place bowl on standup mixer, or use hand held beaters, and beat until mixture is cool and thick, about 5 minutes. Add Tequila and beat until combined.
In a separate bowl beat cream and zest until they form stiff peaks. Fold cream into yolk mixture. Pour mixture into freezable container. Cover, place in freezer and allow to freeze overnight.
