An Alcoholic Ice Cream Float!? Only for St. Paddy's Day

Martha Stewart Living

Mix ice cream, stout, and a dash of luck for a decadent dessert-cocktail perfect for St. Patrick's Day. This recipe is a alcohol-infused version of a root beer float: vanilla ice cream topped with Irish stout. With the ice cream sweetening the rich beer, the float is as much a dessert as it is a drink. Scoop ice cream into a pint glass, and pour in enough stout to fill it. One pint of ice cream and one 12-ounce bottle of beer will yield 2 servings.
