Governor Andrew Cuomo said this regarding the allowance of alcohol-infused ice cream, according to CNN News:

"The craft beverage industry has experienced explosive growth in New York and with that comes a responsibility to advance regulations that help ensure long-term viability, protect consumers, and provide farmers with opportunities to increase their business.  This legislation will further grow a burgeoning industry and boost small businesses while helping to put them on a path of sustained growth that empowers both producers and consumers."
According to the new law, the spiked ice cream can only contain 5% alcohol and has to have the same warning labeling as other products with beer, wine, and hard cider.
