The Guinness Float [4 Simple Recipes]

Time for a Guinness… a Guinness float!  This St. Patrick’s Day, Get drunk and fat at the same time.  This is the first year I will be missing out on The St. Patty’s Open… a round of golf dressed like a leprechaun including heavy drinking… Sorry, Mike.  And sorry reader, I digress.

Here are three super easy Guinness cocktail float recipes to get your Irish on.

The simple method

  • 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream
  • 1 pint/can of Guinness

Scoop the ice cream into a frosty beer mug.  Pour on the Guinness!

Caffeine and chocolate version

This time, drizzle some chocolate into that there frosty mug.  Add espresso ice cream (or better, bailey’s ice cream and a shot of espresso) and fill with Guinness.

The Velvet Glove

The Black Velvet

Guinness and Cider.

The Black and Tan
