With the last of the snow seemingly out of the way (don’t remind us of Mother Nature’s gaff earlier last week), the weather has broke and its time for some cold delights like an ice cream beer float recipe. That means beating the oncoming heat Frankenmuth Brewery style with a classic take on the float with a craft beer twist. By using Frankenmuth’s Munich Style Dunkel Lager, some ice cream and a few other simple staples, you will have a few yummy beer dishes that will rock your tastebuds little world.
While the directions for this recipe aren’t very complicated, the focus is that each individual ingredient will compliment the already great flavor of the Frankenmuth Dunkel Lager. The Dunkel, named after the German word for “dark,” is the most hearty of all of Frankenmuth’s beer. It’s smooth malty flavor shines through the distinct toasted bread flavor that has led Franknemuth Head Brewer Jeff Coon to dub this drink “a meal in a glass.” At the brewery, the Dunkel is often matched up with deep-fried Oreos, which is a little foreshadowing of what is to come.
Ingredients Needed for 2 Frankenmuth Ice Cream Beer Floats:
1 Bottle of Frankenmuth’s Munich Style Dunkel Lager
1 Pint of Chocolate Ice Cream
1 canister of Whipped Cream
2 Cherries for Garnish
2 ice cream/beer dishes
Simply take two ice cream serving glasses and scoop two or three servings of chocolate ice cream into each glass. Place Oreos into a plastic bag, crush them into small pieces with a rolling pin, meat tenderizer or similar item and then add some of the tiny Oreo pieces to each dish. Split the bottle of Frankenmuth Dunkel Lager between the two glasses, or if you’re thirsty for more then feel free to use two beers and drink the rest when you’re done eating the finished float. Spray whipped cream in a fancy design on top of your creation and place a cherry at the peak of the lager ice cream float. Then, enjoy.
