As you prepare yourself for a football-filled weekend, ask yourself whether there’s more to beer than a cold can of Bud. If you’re anything like me, hours of watching football calls for great food and, of course, great drinks. For a creative way to consume football’s favorite beverage, try Alie and Georgia’s Beer Float Your Boat Cocktail.

You don’t want to miss a moment of the game, which means football food needs to be quick and simple, and the same goes with this beer cocktail. All you need are three delicious ingredients: Dulce de leche ice cream (really any flavor you prefer will do), chocolate stout and sweet butterscotch schnapps. Though beer (and football) purists may gawk, this chocolate stout float is more like a boozy, beer-filled dessert than a replacement for your favorite brew. So whether you’re celebrating a victory or drowning your sorrows, your weekend of football frenzy will be met with an indulgent treat.

Bottoms up, folks.

Ingredients:
  • 1 scoop dulce de leche ice cream
  • 16 ounces chocolate stout
  • 1 ounce butterscotch schnapps

Directions:

Add a scoop of ice cream to the bottom of a pint glass, then pour the chocolate stout over and top with a shot of butterscotch schnapps.
