As if you needed any excuse to treat yourself to this Irish ice cream float recipe!

Back in 2015, an Imgur user revealed her recipe for a Guinness Jameson Ice Cream Float on the online image sharing site, and it went viral in a matter of days. People went wild for the delicious and simple frozen treat. 

We decided to have a go at making it, and can't recommend this delectable, boozy shake enough - especially in these warm summer months!

Give this recipe a try and let us know how you get on, but we can be sure you'll be delighted!
