BackstoryI don't like tart tasting desserts generally, but I love lemony/limey tasting desserts for some reason! And this one is a perfect combination between sweet/tart/creaminess.

- In another bowl, whisk egg yolks and milk together.
- Pour in egg and milk mixture into the sugar mixture in the saucepan. Add juices and whisk mixtures until smooth.
