St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays, so to celebrate the day properly, my husband and I will be hosting a dinner party at our house with all the traditional St. Patrick’s Day foods we can muster: corned beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread, and, of course, a simple St. Patrick’s day-themed dessert: Guinness Beer Floats.

The combination of beer and ice cream may seem strange at first, but I assure you it’s delicious enough that even your non-beer-loving friends may find themselves asking for seconds. It’s smooth and creamy, and incredibly indulgent, and it’s made just like root beer floats.

How to make Guinness Beer Floats:

Second, slowly poor the Guinness over the ice cream in each glass until you’ve reached the top.
