A drop of Guinness might not be the first thing that springs to mind when thinking of ingredients for a delicious dessert.
However, the classic Irish drink has proved to have hidden depths, especially when in the hands of the experts.
In this case the experts are the Tipsy Bartenders who have created a video showing how to make what they have called a ‘St Patrick’s Day Guinness Float’ as well as the fantastic Emeril Lagasse, and Cathy Rankin from SheKnows.
Of course, you need more than just a pint of the black stuff to be able to serve up something that would constitute a recognisable dessert.
For the Guinness Ice Cream Float you will also need more traditional ingredients for sweets such as caramel, whipped cream and ice cream.
The Guinness Ice Cream Float is more than simply a dessert, it can also be great as a drink to get the party started at the beginning of a night.
As the Tipsy Bartenders say on their YouTube page: “This sexy, simple drink will blow your mind.”
