ST. PATRICK’S DAY: Have A Tipsy Leprechaun (Stout Float, Spiked Milkshake)

We’ve presented a number of cocktails for St. Patrick’s Day, but we’ve saved the best for last. This one contains our favorite food: ice cream.

It’s easy to whip up a Tipsy Leprechaun, a more sophisticated stout float (a spiked milkshake) that also contains Irish whiskey and Irish cream liqueur.

The recipe comes from R Lounge, a new lounge/restaurant with a beautiful view of Times Square in New York City.


Ingredients Per Cocktail

  • 1.5 ounces Irish Whiskey, such as Jameson’s
  • 1 ounce Irish Cream Liqueur, such as Bailey’s
  • 3 ounces Guinness Stout
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 2 ounce chocolate syrup
  • Optional garnish: Maraschino cherry

    1. GLAZE a pint glass with chocolate syrup

    2. Blend the ingredients and add to the glass.

    3. GARNISH with a cherry.

    4. DRINK up.

    5. HAVE another.


    We can’t wait to celebrate! Tipsy Leprechaun
