    In addition to these tools above, you’ll need a few ingredients to make these boozy milkshakes.

    • Chocolate ice cream
    • Guinness beer—you could also use another stout beer, as stout beers tend to pair well with chocolate
    • Half-and-half
    • Granulated sugar
    • Irish whiskey—your favorite brand or what you’ve got on hand

    How to make Chocolate Guinness Milkshakes

    Blend the ice cream and Guinness together in a blender until smooth.

    In a bowl, combine the half-and-half with the sugar and Irish whiskey in a medium-sized bowl, and whip for using a hand mixer. The mixture will get frothier, but it won’t turn into whipped cream because it doesn’t have the fat content.

    Pour a little bit of the milkshake into a glass, then add a little Irish Whiskey Cream, and continue this process back-and-forth until two milkshakes have been made.

    Enjoy cold!

      Quick tips and tricks for the best Boozy Milkshakes

      • Make sure your beer is cold! That’ll keep the texture of the milkshake beautiful.
      • Double or triple the recipe for a crowd. So long as your blender is large enough to handle it, you can make this recipe for more people to enjoy!
      • Store leftovers in the fridge or freezer. If you make a big batch of these milkshakes, and they’ll be drunk a little later, pop the blender container into the fridge to keep it cold until someone is ready to drink it. This will keep it for up to an hour.
      • Switch it up! Instead of making the frothy Irish Whiskey Cream, serve these Chocolate Guinness Milkshakes topped with sweetened whipped cream or add a shot of Irish cream to the milkshakes!

      1. This is making me wish I could handle dairy a bit better. Might be worth the consequences though. ALSO: those glasses! Super cute!

        1. You could totally use a vegan ice cream or a dairy-free one, Erini! I’ve done this, too, because sometimes, my body can’t handle dairy well, either. Thank you!

      2. I’m social media stalking you today for baby news! I hope you get enjoy this milkshake soon, mama! We have Guinness in the house right now so I may be partaking in one of these shortly!

        1. I love how the day this was published was the day my child was born. Sadly, I did NOT have one of these milkshakes that evening, but I’ve enjoyed several since. 😉 Enjoy this, lady!

      3. Oh my, what a perfect way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!! These look incredible!!
