Guinness Floats

Guinness Week continues with a slightly different way to enjoy your pint of stout — Guinness Floats!

These floats are as easy as 1-2-3.  First, place a few scoops of your favorite chocolate or vanilla ice cream into a glass.  Then slowly pour in some Guinness and watch it foam like crazy.  And finally, top with some chocolate syrup or chocolate sauce.

Then of course, enjoy the heck out of it.

The end.  :)

    Guiness is great and can’t wait to test to see if it can be better.

    Guinness? You are speaking this Irish guy’s language. I never would have thought of doing this but, hey, why not?
