St. Patrick's Day Guinness Milkshake 2-Ingredient Recipe

Sub Out Root Beer For This Guinness Float

With St. Patrick's Day a few days away away, I went off in search of a timely tipple to enjoy over the weekend. I found a number of drinks that called for ingredients like vermouth and hazelnut whipped cream; they sounded delicious, but rather contradictory to the rowdy spirit of St. Paddy's.

I finally landed on a Guinness float. It embodies the boisterous beer drinking of March 17, with a nostalgic nod to youth. The combination might sound questionable, but I promise that the frothy, chocolaty Guinness is the perfect foil for sweet vanilla ice cream. For the single step recipe, read on.

I always wanted to try Guinness, but it's not vegetarian. I'm not a huge beer fan, but my guy is. This isn't a Milkshake, it's a float.

My friends and I tried this a few years ago, it got a giant fail from all of us. You are better off just drinking a Guinness.

Add a little dark chocolate or dark fudge topping while it's blending, and Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a winner! :) :drool: :)

I just saw Mr Flay make this shake a couple of hours ago....he put the ice cream in a blender and then added the beer until the blender was about 3/4 full and then whipped it into a shake....seems like it might just be the perfect mix!
