Don’t Judge Me Mondays: Stout & Chocolate Float
We are fortunate to live within minutes of dozens of wineries in Woodinville and Redhook Brewery. While Redhook no longer brews its beer in this Woodinville location, the Forecaster’s Public House is still open. The food is great! It’s definitely in our rotation of reliable local restaurants. The regular menu is tasty but there’s also some interesting desserts. Unfortunately, I’m usually so stuffed with dinner (I’m looking at you nachos!) that I don’t have enough room for dessert. One of the items I’ve always wanted to try is the Porter float. This float uses porter ice cream from a local company and porter beer. It got me thinking, though, why not try this with stout. The creaminess and of stout seems like it’s just begging to be in a float! There are already chocolate stouts out there and I know I’ve seen chocolate and Guinness cake recipes. So I went for it and I’m glad I did!
Time to get your float on!
Swirl the chocolate syrup around your favorite pint glass.
Now pour half of the stout in the glass, I used a plain stout I found at the store. Guinness is of course popular, but if you can find a chocolate stout go with that.
Put your ice cream in the glass and top off with the rest of the beer.
The foam of the beer gets even more frothy and creamy from the ice cream. It’s an amazing treat!
