Mix Ice Cream, Stout, Dash of Luck

Martha Stewart Living, March 2008

This Saint Patrick's Day, enjoy a cocktail version of a root beer float: vanilla ice cream topped with Irish stout. With the ice cream sweetening the rich beer, the float is as much a dessert as it is a drink. Scoop ice cream into a pint glass, and pour in enough stout to fill it. One pint of ice cream and one 12-ounce bottle of beer will yield 2 servings.

    I like Guinness as much as the next person, but these floats were simply undrinkable. So Gross!!!

    The best stout float by far is one from a chocolate stout like Bison.

    there's a brew pub in town here (Victoria, BC CANADA) that makes stout floats...they are the best!!! And making at home with Guinness is just as tasty!
