Guinness Stout Float

About a year ago Tucker discovered the deliciousness of coke floats.  It was a hot summer day, he wanted something to drink along with something sweet so I decided it was time to introduce him to the classic goodness that is the coke float.  It was a hit, to say the least.  Not only did he down the first one, he proceeded to get the ice cream container, scoop and bottle of coke and scoop, poured, and drank about 3 more times.  So after that first experience, the coke float has been a staple in our house.
The other day Tucker asked for another coke float and that got me to thinking.  What would be a fun, adult spin on the classic coke float?  Then I thought about St. Patrick's day and how it was right around the corner and thought a stout float would be the perfect adult twist on the classic float.
After making Tucker his coke float, I got another glass out and plopped a few scoops of vanilla ice cream in there and drizzles some chocolate syrup over the ice cream and then added some stout.  And for good measure, I added another little drizzle of chocolate syrup.  After the first sip, I was hooked.  Stout, ice cream and chocolate syrup.  Talk about a combination that is meant to be. 
So this St. Patrick's day, treat yourself and your friends to an adult float.  Make these stout floats to celebrate.  While I love this with the classic vanilla, coffee ice cream is also a delicious alternative to vanilla.  So twist things up with this stout float!

Guinness Stout Float

2 Scoops vanilla ice cream
1 1/2 Cups stout beer ( I used extra stout Guinness, but a chocolate stout would be delicious too)
Chocolate fudge sauce


Place scoops of ice cream in a glass.  Drizzle with chocolate syrup, pour beer, slowly over the ice cream and syrup.  Drizzle with more syrup, if desired.  Serve.
