The Dirty Girl Scout: Chocolate Mint Beer Float


This isn’t a recipe. Not really, it’s more like assembly instructions for how to make a float that tastes like a Girl Scout Thin Mint, but with beer.

Boozy, chocolatey, minty.

But there really isn’t a recipe involved. Add more ice cream if that’s what you like. Add more beer, if that suits you.

I used my homemade Chocolate Mint Stout Ice Cream & a lot of Bison Chocolate Stout.

It tastes like beer. In case you were hoping for one of those overly sweet concoctions they sell at diners.

But, more or less, this is how you do it:


Step one:

Add a few scoops of chocolate mint ice cream to the bottom of a mug.


Grab some beer, chocolate stout is preferable.

Pour beer over ice cream.

  1. Neato. I’d only heard of the shot version before your post, with creme de menthe and chocolate sauce and whipped cream.

    1. There’s a shot? I’m so out of that loop, I don’t think I’ve had a shot in the past 5 years! I like to enjoy my liquor rather than get it down my throat as fast as possible 😉

  2. I’m with Claire, yes yes yes yes yes!!!!

    Seriously, we have a kitchen at the office…. sure it has no stove and the toaster oven doesn’t work all the time…. but I’m sure we could work something out to turn you into my personal chef!

    Gingerbread Ale will be ready in October, shoot me an email with your mailing address and we will get you some samples!!!



    1. Soooo, a recipe that involves the possible use of a toaster oven, probably a fridge, maybe a microwave and definitely beer. I do love a challenge 😉

      I’ve been thinking about that Gingerbread Ale! I love that stuff, I’ll start to concoct a recipe.

  3. That has got to be the most absolutely decadent and delicious thing I have ever laid eyes upon. Will you be my new BFFE? Please and thank you 😉

  4. I LOVE the name you’ve given this. I can’t drink beer so my version comes around during Christmas with hot chocolate and peppermint schnapps.

  5. Hi there. The current Food on Friday on Carole’s Chatter is collecting links to posts about shakes and smoothies. I do hope you link this lovely one in. Please do pop back to check out some of the other links – there are a lot of good ones already. Have a great week.
