Homemade ice-cream is worth the effort, and a splash of vodka is hardly noticeable but makes all the difference in the consistency. Alcohol does not freeze, which prevents the consistency of the spun ice cream from freezing rock hard after being frozen. Perfect any time of the year, the flavor will have you making this recipe again and again.
