Pumpkin beer. Ice cream. A sweet take on a kiddie classic. What’s not to love? Inspired by Gal on a Mission, click through to learn how to make your own beer float just in time for Halloween. (For a kid-friendly version, swap the beer for traditional root beer.)
What You’ll Need:
1/4 cup canned pumpkin purée
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
Oktoberfest or pumpkin beer
Vanilla ice cream
Pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
What to Do:
Combine pumpkin puree, sugar, and water in a sauce pan. Heat until it’s a thick, syrupy consistency.
Once it cools, add half of the pumpkin syrup to a mug or beer mug. Top with 1-2 scoops of vanilla ice cream and cover with a bottle of beer. We used a local Brooklyn Brewery Oktoberfest.
Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice or ground cinnamon. Cheers!
