Vanilla Guinness Floats
Ditch the Root Beer and try The Hungry Mouse's recipe for Vanilla Guinness Floats.
Guinness is the favored beer here at The Mouse House, hands down. While we usually enjoy it at home straight out of the can, we do occasionally cook with it, too. (Mmmm, Guinness Stew with Sage and Ginger.) One my all-time favorite things to do with this creamy, rich stout, however, is mix it with ice cream. If you like stout and have never had one of these, you’re in for a treat.
Here’s how to make a classic vanilla Guinness float and a decadent chocolate one. Both are topped with luxurious creme chantilly, which is sweetened whipped cream with a touch of vanilla. These drinks are velvety, grown-up takes on the classic root beer float. We like to make them for friends on movie nights and serve them with a plate of warm, chewy brownies.
