Just in time for the weekend, day 5 of “Float Week” – Guinness Extra Stout Floats. These stout floats are a smooth dark beer *punch* with coffee ice cream and a sweet touch of dark chocolate syrup.
I have to admit, while making all the other floats this week, getting to taste this one was always a bit of a surprise. The “extra stout” of this ice cream float is no joke, but wow…it is soooo good! I was telling my family about this one and they agreed they would definitely pay a few bucks to get their hands on one of these.
As I said previously, these floats are for the Irish in me. We are pretty big on Ireland around here. Besides our heritage, my husband and I got engaged on the beautiful coast of Ireland a few years ago. Someday, I hope to go back, but until then I will reminisce with one of these!
- 2 scoops coffee ice cream

- In a frosty mug, line sides with dark chocolate syrup then add 2 scoops coffee ice cream and fill with Guinness. Garnish with additional chocolate syrup and dark chocolate shavings (optional).
