#NYSOM Happy Hour: We believe in celebrating, and have a tradition of ending each work week with a New York State-inspired cocktail. Here's our guide to mixing and sipping The Chocolate Stout Beer Shake.
“The Chocolate Stout Beer Shake”
A beer milkshake? Why not! This week’s cocktail is the most indulgent one yet, and it brings the classic (root) beer float to a whole new level. The secret is combining chocolate ice cream — opt for a premium, higher fat ice cream to ensure your shake is thicker and full of flavor — with chocolate (er, Choklat
) beer from Southern Tier Brewery
Now, you can have your dessert — and drink it, too. Just remember to sip slowly, and have a spoon on hand.
Add cold beer to blender container (use 3/4 cup for a thicker shake or 1 cup for a thinner shake). Scoop ice cream into blender container. Blend until smooth, stopping blender and scraping down sides as needed. Pour into Tom Stoenner’s large drinking glasses
. Recipe makes two shakes (about three cups total).
