Hump Day Happy Hour
A Buzz-Worthy Drink to Celebrate Toy Story 3
By Julie Fishman
Toy Story 3 hits theaters this Friday, and we can't believe it's been over a decade since our pals Woody and Buzz have graced the big screen. We're also not embarrassed to admit our love for this talking toy series that's perfect for both kids and kids at heart. Not only are we looking forward to meeting a dozen new characters, but we also can't wait to watch this latest installment in 3-D.
We suggest you keep your “buzz” going after the show (once the kids hit the hay, of course) with a “Buzz Lightyear Beer Float,” designed just for Glo by Steve Lieberman, owner of Santa Monica, CA's New-York-inspired bar, West 4th/Jane. Easy to make — and even easier to enjoy — this delicious spin on a childhood classic is both nostalgic and comforting. And we think it's the perfect way to end a day, Disney-filled, or otherwise.
"Buzz Lightyear Beer Float"
Brooklyn Brewery or Rogue Ale Chocolate Stout
Premium Chocolate Ice Cream
Toppings of your choice
Pour stout halfway into large wine goblet. Add a scoop (or two!) of ice cream. Apply toppings, like whipped cream or chocolate syrup, as desired. Enjoy with a spoon.

This drinkable dessert cocktail is oh-so-yummy, and feeds our perpetual chocolate cravings.Istockphoto
