This is a Baked ice cream float – in the style of Baked the bakery, not baked in the oven. And Baked style means there’s booze in there instead of plain old root beer. At any rate, it’s a good way to finish up a meal. Or replace a meal, if that’s your preference.
Simple to make, a standard brown cow is just a root beer float that includes chocolate syrup. Warm cream and good quality chocolate make a quick and delicious chocolate syrup. Top that off with vanilla ice cream, a shot of coffee liqueur (St. George Nola in my case) and a sprinkling of nutmeg, and you’ve got dessert.
I particularly like how easy it is to mix things up with this, too. I almost used raspberry brandy instead of coffee liqueur. Nocino might be nice as well.
