Cook Time: 0 minutes
Servings: 4

Who says ice cream floats are only for kids? A scoop of coffee ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate turn rich, dark Irish stout beer into a celebratory dessert drink for adults.


  • 1 pint (16 fl. oz./500 ml) coffee ice cream
  • 4 Tbs. (2 fl. oz./60 ml) chocolate syrup
  • 2 cans (each 16 fl. oz./500 ml) Irish stout beer, such as
      Guinness, or chocolate stout beer


Freeze four 1-pint (16-fl.-oz./500-ml) glasses for 30 minutes.

Divide scoops of the ice cream between the glasses. Drizzle each serving with 1 Tbs. of the chocolate syrup, then top with the beer. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
