Bailey's Irish Float
For the chocolate syrup, in a medium saucepan, whisk together the cocoa powder and sugar until blended.
Add cold water, salt, and vanilla extract and continue to whisk over medium heat until boiling, stirring constantly.
Continue boiling until mixture thickens, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove from heat, set aside and cool.
Refrigerate in an airtight container to store for up to a month.
To assemble the float, scoop three to four scoops of vanilla ice cream into a tall glass.
Pour Guinness beer and Baileys Irish Cream over the ice cream.
Drizzle with chocolate syrup.
