Alcohol does slow down the freezing of sorbets or ice cream. You may have added a bit too much alcohol if it is struggling to set.
Get your ice cream or sorbet out of the freezer before eating. Try popping it in the fridge for half an hour before eating. Do this and everything will be better, the flavour and texture.
