Thirsty Thursday: Start the Football Frenzy with a Chocolate Stout Float

As you prepare yourself for a football-filled weekend, ask yourself whether there’s more to beer than a cold can of Bud. If you’re anything like me, hours of watching football calls for great food and, of course, great drinks. For a creative way to consume football’s favorite beverage, try Alie and Georgia’s Beer Float Your Boat Cocktail.

You don’t want to miss a moment of the game, which means football food needs to be quick and simple, and the same goes with this beer cocktail. All you need are three delicious ingredients: Dulce de leche ice cream (really any flavor you prefer will do), chocolate stout and sweet butterscotch schnapps. Though beer (and football) purists may gawk, this chocolate stout float is more like a boozy, beer-filled dessert than a replacement for your favorite brew. So whether you’re celebrating a victory or drowning your sorrows, your weekend of football frenzy will be met with an indulgent treat.

Bottoms up, folks.
