Guinness and Ice Cream Recipe

Vanilla Ice Cream
Istock/DNY59

I first heard of this surprisingly appealing concoction — sort of a root beer float for grownups — from my friend Belle Casares, née Holahan, a granddaughter of the Irish-American writer John O’Hara, who was in turn descended from the Anglo-Norman Franeys of County Laois.

Directions

Divide the ice cream equally between 2 tall, ice-cold, wide-mouthed glasses (soda fountain glasses) or glass beer mugs.

Divide the Guinness equally between the two, pouring it over the ice cream; then stir lightly.
