I love Ice Cream mixed with some alcohol in it but I'm looking for some new flavors to try at home. Anyone have some good originals?

-I've tried a bunch of versions of Stout Ice Cream (Chocolate/Milk Chocolate/Malt)

-Avocado/Beer (taken from a local ice cream store)

-some whiskey Ice Creams

- Rum/Coconut, Rum/Banana

Some Tequila and Beer ideas would really be great.

    Try something with Kahlua and chocolate chips.

    For beer, a beer float always floats my fancy ...

      this one sounds SO good to me - i'll bet it would be fabulous topped with crushed pretzels:

        I love marsala in ice cream. Topped with berries!

          I like Sambuca on a good coffee ice cream

            Bourbon is great in brown sugar ice cream, with raisins or figs. Bourbon also works very nicely with maple and chocolate in ice cream. Here's a link for a bourbon ice cream with a touch of molasses and a maple-caramel swirl and candied bacon bits, adapted from a David Lebovitz recipe:

            I think of using tequila and lighter beers (not lite beer) for sorbets, but here's a easy no-churn margarita ice cream recipe from Nigella Lawson:

            Here's a recipe posted at chow using raspberry wheat beer. I'm not familiar with the brand of beer the poster used, but any fruit beer, such as Cherry Kriek, or a domestic fruit flavored wheat beer, would work:

              My husband's favorite ice cream is Armagnac hazelnut praline. I make a custard with cream in which I have steeped hazelenuts. As the custard is cooling I add the Armagnac and let the heat burn off the alcohol. Then at the end of churning I add chopped up hazelnut praline. The key is to get enough Armagnac flavor without the alcohol which will prevent the ice cream from freezing.
