1/2 cup cold heavy cream

2 tablespoons Irish whiskey, plus more to taste

2 teaspoons sugar

2 cups vanilla, chocolate or coffee ice cream

1 12-ounce bottle Guinness or other stout, chilled


  1. Combine the heavy cream, whiskey and sugar in a bowl and whisk until soft peaks form. Taste it, then fold in more whiskey if you want!
  2. Divide the ice cream between 2 chilled glasses, then very slowly pour the Guinness into each. (Be careful -- it will bubble over if you pour too fast!) Serve with the whiskey whipped cream.
