Amarula ice cream

I went and bought myself one of those expensive ice cream makers that has an active refrigeration unit. Well, I had to justify it somehow. I tried one of the recipes in the provided recipe book but only found that the recipes were so sweet that I had to just dump everything down the sink, to my dismay. So, I figured to hell with it. I looked around for something nice to make ice cream with. And then I remembered that bottle of Amarula that my sister kindly left with us the last time she was here, and an idea formed.

1 cup heavy cream
1/8th cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup Amarula

Combine in bowl and stir gently to fully
Dissolve sugar. Use in ice cream maker per your machine's instructions. You will get lovely Amarula flavor from these proportions. Be wary of adding more, as the increased alcohol content may prevent it from freezing fully, whereas this recipe will do so beautifully.
