Saint Patrick’s day may be passed us, but this is one recipe that should be around all year long. I’ve always wanted to try making a beer float, I can’t believe how delicious they are. We made them for dessert, so using shooter glasses is nice to get a taste instead of an entire meal out of it. You will probably want go back for a second (like we did).

If you don’t have Guinness, try it with your favorite stout. We also made tried these with a peanut butter milk stout from Belching Beaver brewery, which was awesome.

Just a drizzle of your favorite chocolate sauce does the trick. My current favorite is from Ghirardelli, but I’m always open to try something new.
