The addition of bourbon infuses the drink with notes of caramel and vanilla, while Amaro, an Italian herbal liqueur, introduces a complex bittersweet profile. The splash of sugar syrup adds a touch of sweetness, balancing the bitter notes from the Guinness and the herbal qualities of Amaro. Served in a highball glass, this dessert cocktail is a sophisticated twist on a classic ice cream float, offering a layered experience of textures and flavors that cater to those who enjoy a bittersweet, creamy beverage with an indulgent twist.
