While you’ll be hard-pressed to find a Guinness float—Guinness on draft, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream—on a restaurant or bar’s official menu, most will make it special, if you have the stones to order it. And you should—rich and creamy, matched with the undeniably complementary injection of alcohol, the Guinness float combines to of the world’s greatest treats: beer and ice cream. Ask to make it at Bucktown’s Silver Cloud, and you won’t be made fun of.
