Place the strawberries, castor sugar and lemon juice in a saucepan.

Bring up to a boil and simmer on medium high for about 7 minutes.

Blitz with an emersion blender until smooth. Stir through the gin and set aside to cool.

To make the ice cream, pour the milk and cream into a saucepan. Add a quarter cup of sugar, vanilla pod and seeds.

Bring the mixture up to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and discard the pod.

Place the egg yolks and the remaining sugar in a bowl and whisk until pale and thick.

Slowly add the warm cream to the yolks before pouring the mixture back into the saucepan.

Cook over a medium heat, stirring all the while, until the cream is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

Strain the custard into a bowl and cool for 30 minutes. Cover with cling film and chill overnight.

Churn in an ice cream maker until firm.

Spoon half the ice cream into a container. Drizzle with a third of the strawberry coulis.

Repeat the layering once more then swirl through with a skewer.

Cover and freeze for several hours.

Serve with the remaining coulis on the side.
