Beer floats are nothing new to the scene of beer. Most beer floats are designed with vanilla or chocolate ice cream. Stouts of all styles and brown ales work well with chocolate and coffee ice creams, so you know that’s where I’m headed!
We talked about the usefulness of stout in recipes in a previous post (read it here). Now let’s see how it can jazz up a childhood treat into an adult favorite. Here are some nationally acclaimed recipes for everyone to try:
Young’s Double Chocolate Stout Float
- Young’s Double Chocolate Stout
- Chocolate Fudge ice cream
Scoop ice cream into pint glass. Add Young’s Double Dark Chocolate Stout.
Chocolate Guinness Float
- Guinness Extra Stout
- Chocolate ice cream
- chocolate syrup
Pour half of the Guinness in a pint glass. Add chocolate syrup and mix. Place 2 scoops of chocolate ice cream in glass. Finish with a final pour of Guinness for a dramatic head.
These recipes couldn’t have arrived at a better time. Drink Beer Day is September 28 so break out the chilled glasses, scoop out the ice cream and float yourself and your friends a delicious drink. Or just pour yourself a frosty one with some decadent Bacon Stout Brownies. It’s a win-win either way. Drexelius Chocolates has a great selection of all natural chocolate that pairs wonderfully with beer. Remember that chocolate orders over $25 ship free.
