Author Notes: Put the kids to bed and whip out your beer mugs. This float’s for grown-ups only. It’s inspired by my Fudgy Chocolate Stout Cake, of which the batter is bowl-licking deliciousness. As much fun as it is to lick that bowl clean, I decided to develop a slightly less embarrassing delivery system in the form of an ice cream float. It’s got a nice balance of flavors and tastes – sweet, bitter, creamy, caramel, mocha. I’m definitely not the first person to stick ice cream in their Guinness, but this is some serious yummy stuff. mrslarkin

Serves 2

  • 2 large beer mugs
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup, divided
  • 2 ounces espresso or strong brewed coffee, cooled, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, divided (optional)
  • 1 pint premium chocolate ice cream
  • 1 12-ounce bottle Guinness Extra Stout
  • Unsweetened whipped cream
  1. Drizzle 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup around the insides of each mug.
  2. Pour an ounce of coffee in each mug.
  3. Add ¼ teaspoon vanilla to each mug. Swish the mugs around a few times.
  4. Next, add a couple scoops ice cream to each mug.
  5. Angle your beer mug and slowly pour in half a bottle of stout into each mug. Easy does it. It will foam up.
  6. You might have to take a sip to make room for the whipped cream. Top your mug with whipped cream. Insert straw. Sip. Grab a long-handled spoon and dig in.

I like the idea of a guinness float mustache. I don't usually mess with my beer but this would be one I would go for. Nice recipe.

Oh my, mrslarkin, you are killing me with all of your amazing Guinness recipes. I have always thought of it as a meal in itself, but now, with your chocolate-espresso combinations I clearly have to expand my horizons.

Nirvana in a glass! I had a suspicion you'd whip something like this out, but it's even better than I imagined.

Seriously no kidding about the bowl-licking qualities of your cake. We love it! To say this is inspired is an understatement.
