Here is a deliciously indulgent drink to get you in the mood for the weekend!

If you’ve never had a beer float before, things need to change now! It may sound like a worrying mix, but beer and ice-cream (and a bit of cointreau!) is actually an amazing combination. I chose this chocolate stout from Galway Bay Brewery which works perfectly, but you could use any stout you please! You like beer? You like chocolate? You like ice cream? Then what is not to love here! I am a big BIG fan of this drink!

To make this beautiful drink you simply half fill a glass with the stout, throw in a scoop of ice cream (I used vanilla), then add the rest of the stout to fill the glass. Top it off with some cointreau and a chocolate flake and there you have it. The ultimate beer float!
