Amanda Freitag's Guinness float is simple to make

It's never too early to get the party started on St. Patrick's Day. In preparation for Lá Fhéile Pádraig, Amanda Freitag shared a video on her Instagram account to show her followers how to whip up a Guinness float faster than you can say, "Sláinte!"

To make Amanda's "boozy AF" Guinness float, you'll need to gather just a few ingredients — some of which you may already have on hand. First and foremost, fill a tall glass with two scoops of vanilla ice cream. Next, slowly pour in the Guinness — a staple stout of Ireland with a rich flavor and an even richer history. Amanda, being the pro she is, tilts the glass slightly to avoid too much foam. Lastly, to top everything off with a touch of creaminess and sweetness, add a splash of Baileys Irish Cream — a versatile liqueur flavored with cream, cocoa, and Irish whiskey. For an even sweeter drink, feel free to drizzle on some chocolate syrup. After a sip or two of this jovial, intoxicating float, you'll be jigging in no time!
