1 large cantaloupe, seeds and rind removed, chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
3 Tablespoons limoncello (or 2 Tablespoons vodka and 1 Tablespoon lemon juice)
1/2 cup cream
In a small saucepan, combine sugar and water and bring to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer, add limoncello and cook for 5 minutes.
Set aside to cool.
In a blender or food processor, puree cantaloupe.
Add in simple syrup (water and sugar), and cream.
Blend to combine.
Depending on the machine you use and your preferences, you may want to pour the mixture through a sieve. I used the Vitamix and it was plenty smooth.
Chill for as long as you can wait, preferably at least an hour.
Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and run according to directions.

It hardens completely in the freezer, so allow it to soften on the counter for about 20 minutes before serving.
