1 tablespoon chocolate syrup
2 scoops cherry chocolate chip ice cream (about 1 cup)
1 can stout beer, such as Guinness, chilled
Whipped cream, from da can, as desired
Crushed chocolate candies, such as M and M's, as desired
Jacked Cherries, recipe follows, as desired, optional
1 shot whisky, such as Jack Daniel's, optional
1 cup favorite whisky, such as Jack Daniel's
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup dried cherries
Swirl the chocolate syrup around in a glass all fancy-like. Place the ice cream on the bottom and pour the cold stout slowly into the glass. Top with whipped cream, crushed chocolate candies and Jacked Cherries if using. Serve with a straw, a long spoon and a shot of whisky, if desired.
Bring the whisky and sugar to a gentle simmer in a small saucepan and simmer until the sugar is dissolved. Pour the mixture over the cherries in a mason jar and let it sit in the fridge overnight.
