Black Velvet…St. Patrick’s Day Cocktail

Like Guinness?

Like Champagne?

Like Hard Cider?

Here’s the drink for you.

Looks like Guinness...but it's not straight Guinness.

Black Velvet is equal parts Champagne (Brut, Sparkling Wine, Prosecco, etc) and Guinness.

I started mine off with Champagne first (did one with the beer first but that foam got out of hand).

Halfway there

Then add the Guinness (Watch out for the foam, this thing can get crazy if poured funky).  Drink ends up tasting like hard cider.  Seriously.    They love each other…best friends!

Made these last night to go along with a delicious corned beef dinner.  Insta-favorite.  Good luck ordering them at most bars though.  They’ll probably look at you a little funny.
