Brad and I went on a date a while back and had some locally brewed beer. I ordered a Shake Chocolate Porter from Boulder Beer and immediately new I had to make a beer float with it. The Great Pumpkin Float is a combination of chocolatey beer with a slight coffee flavor and deliciously spiced Horchata Ice Cream from Tillamook. This is the easiest cocktail you will ever make and it is perfect for last-minute Halloween parties or as a treat while you watch The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown (you know you want to)!
There isn't much of a recipe for this (beer + ice cream = done) but here ya go:
The Great Pumpkin Float
- 1 bottle dark, smooth beer (chocolate porter is my preference)
- 2 scoops Tillamook Horchata Ice Cream or cinnamon ice cream
- Scoop the ice cream into a large beer mug.
- Slowly pour the beer over the ice cream.
