You guysssss... I’m back from Alaska and can I just tell you – it was an incredible, life-changing experience. Simply amazing. Not only was the scenery beautiful, but the food/drinks were to die for.
Over the next several weeks, I’ll share my photos and the Press Trip of a lifetime where I toured restaurants, breweries and distilleries in Juneau, Haines, Anchorage, Soldotna, Sterling and Homer. Alaska alone is an incredibly beautiful and breath-taking state, but their food, beer and spirits? Fabulous!
I hope you will all follow me where I write about the adventure and experience over at The Daily Meal.
With the spirit of Alaska still resonating in my heart and my mind, I’m sharing a drink recipe today using a craft beer from one of our local breweries, Elysian Brewing in Seattle, WA.
And, if you are one of those lovely people that don’t like beer, I’d like to try to convince you. 🙂
All of my close friends know that I love beer of all kinds. My favorite beers tend to be stouts or dark beers, but I also won’t turn down a Pilsner, IPA, Amber, Red or Brown. I guess I’m an EOBL (equal opportunity beer lover), and I’m always willing to give anything a try.
But, this Espresso Milk Stout Ale had me at hello.
When one my dear friends introduced me to this Elysian Split Shot Espresso Milk Stout Beer, I was really excited to try it. Alone, it’s a strong espresso flavored stout beer that’s very drinkable.
But, when mixed with ice cream? Divine!
The Split Shot Espresso Milk Stout combines the talents of Elysian Brewing and Stumptown Coffee in a deliciously smooth, very Northwest beer.
What is so great about this cocktail is, it’s only two ingredients: ice cream and this Split Shot Espresso Milk Stout Beer. It doesn’t get much easier or better than that.
Try it – you will love it!

- 1 (12-ounce) bottle Elysian Split Shot Espresso Milk Stout Beer
- Place ice cream in a blender and pour one bottle of Elysian Split Shot Espresso Milk Stout Beer over the top. Cover with the lid and liquefy until thoroughly mixed.
