For the loooongest time I wouldn’t drink Guinness. Not because I didn’t like it. No, it was because I thought I wouldn’t like it.
Well, I was wrong! It’s great! And it’s even better in these Guinness Ice Cream Floats
Guinness Ice Cream Floats
Guinness is a dark Irish dry stout that is made with malted barley and roasted unmalted barley. It’s rich, hoppy, and is pretty filling. At least my husband says it feels like you’re drinking a loaf of bread as you always feel so full afterwards. ha!
It’s Ireland’s most successful beer so it’s very popular at St. Patrick’s Day. Just don’t try to make it green! It’s too dark so you would have to add in A LOT of food coloring, which could effect the flavor of the beer.
Instead make this Guiness Ice Cream Float for a fun adult float. yay!
When making this float, you want to make sure all of your ingredients are really cold. Chill the beer in the freezer for about half an hour before making it.
Second, you’ll want to enjoy your float in a pretty glass. There isn’t a real reason beyond that it will just make it feel extra special. ha!
Grab a 6 pack, a big tub of ice cream, and a bunch of friends so you all can enjoy these Guinness Ice Cream Floats. Cheers to St. Patrick’s Day!
What is needed in the float?
This float just needs Guinness, ice cream, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce. The sprinkles are just a fun added touch!
Can I use chocolate ice cream?
Sure! I used vanilla ice cream but chocolate is equally great for these floats.
