ENTERTAINING ISH
The Beer and Ice-cream Gods Have Spoken


Ice cream is usually the way to beat the summer heat and humidity. If you are looking for something more in the liquid form there is always a shake or root beer float. But all these ideas’ are usually missing alcohol. Well, the people over in Boston’s The Lansdowne Pub have come up with something new and alcoholic that may get your attention. A Guinness Float.

Guinness, made in Dublin, is a dark, creamy stout which takes time to settle. Add a scoop of ice cream and watch it blend and form into a consistency of a milk shake. You may even find it is better to eat this delicious drunken summer treat with a spoon.
