Irish Floaters?
 
Thoughts on Chocolate ice cream and Guinness floaters? Heard about this- from a very reputable foodie- and it sounds intriguing. I guess canned Guinness at home; love to try it out as well.

I like a little milk in my Guinness, might have to try this out sometime.

like a coke float except with Guiness. Sounds intriguing.

Did you mix the ice cream and Guinness together until it was all liquid or did you leave big chunks of ice cream? I am just trying to picture this concoction in my head because I like both of the ingredients.

Yogi, I started with the stout and a scoop of the ice cream. It sort of mixed itself. I did help that along with spoons served with the glass. It ended up being half melted and half whole.

My idea of an Irish floater is that single round ice cube sitting in the middle of my Jameson.

I also just thought of a leprechaun with a booger hanging out of his nose for some reason.

Your comment might be tongue in cheek, but it sounds tasty with Vanilla as well.

I was being serious- the OP said that the recipe calls for chocolate, but I prefer vanilla and with Guinness already being dark, I'd think that adding vanilla would be a good complement but idk.

Test it out. It can't be bad, right?

I think that it would be just fine. I made this once with chocolate-peanut butter ice cream and that worked. Butter pecan would be very good I think.

As I'm sure you've surmised, the idea came from the one and only - The Yancey! As soon as I'm off these pills, I'll try it!
