The beer sorbet carries this warning--
Note: Since sugar and alcohol work as an antifreeze, if mixture is too 
sweet or too alcoholy, it will not freeze properly.

The Vodka Berry sorbet doesn't carry such a warning.

We did a grenadine sorbet decades ago for the one queen who liked that

It worked ok. The only problem was the usual feast running long before 
it was served.
It was slushy when it was served.
Food Network has several sorbet recipes with alcohol. There's even a 
Rose and Champagne
