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.
