  • 12 oz Irish stout
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream (generous scoops:), about 1/2 cup each, #8 is ideal)*
  • 4 oz Bailey's or other Irish cream (or 2 mini bottles)**


  • Fill two glasses with the Irish stout (split equally). Allow the foam to dissipate. 
  • Carefully ease a large scoop of vanilla ice cream into each glass so as to not make the stout foam too much upon contact with it. It helps if you gently tilt the glass. 
  • Top each glass with Bailey's (either 2 oz or a whole mini-bottle), stick a straw in it and serve.
    Optional garnish - caramel cookie (think Girl Scouts).


* A great option here is our Wicked Double Stout Ice Cream but you will need to plan ahead (way ahead).
** Mini bottles of Bailey's are 1.7 oz.
