This float is strictly for the grown-ups—a delicious, indulgent way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
This takes the traditional combination of stout and ice cream but dials it up a notch (or, let’s be honest, several!) by incorporating coffee liqueur and a shot of bold dark roast coffee (like our Sweet July House Blend). Top it all off with some whipped cream and dark chocolate shavings because, why not? Say goodbye to green beer and hello to your new favorite St. Patrick’s Day treat that is just as tasty every other day of the year.
3 scoops vanilla bean ice cream
1/2 oz coffee liqueur (like Kahlúa)
1/2 oz coffee, cooled
1/2 oz milk
1/2 oz stout beer (like Guinness)
Whipped cream, topping
Shortbread biscuit, for topping
- Assemble the float by adding three scoops of ice cream to a tall glass. Add the coffee liqueur, coffee and milk. Slowly pour in the stout beer. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings, and serve with a buttery shortbread biscuit.
