Thirsty Thursday- Guinness Floats

guinness float

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. I prefer wine but when I drink beer, for the most part I like a lighter flavor beer. Well, since Guinness is a dark, rich caramely color I thought that it was hoppy and I wouldn’t like it. I know, don’t judge a book but its cover!!!

Well, once I tried it I realized that it was amazing and I had been missing out. I love it since it is not hoppy- no me gusta hoppy beers- and is really smooth enjoyable beer. Guinness is a dry stout that is made with roasted unmalted barley and ultimately has a roasted coffee like flavor. Price says it’s like drinking a loaf of bread as you always feel so full afterwards. ha!

This Guinness Float is a fantastic way to enjoy the #1 exported beer from Ireland while celebrating St. Patrick’s Day!

    A new one on me!! In my wildest dreams I could never have come up with an idea of beer and ice cream in the same sentence never mind the same glass. I might have to give this a try, although I am not much of a beer drinker. It looks good and I would imagine it is a very addictive drink too. Ice cream and chocolate, yah! I’d say for-sure addictive.
