This Beer-Ice Cream Float Is the Easiest St. Patrick's Day Dessert

Just mix ice cream, stout, and a dash of luck!


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.


Serve with festive green-and-white striped straws, or for extra good luck, make your own four-leaf clover swizzle sticks!
