Black Velvet, Please.

Thank you Epicurious for the recipe. This bartender clearly can’t be bothered to write it out herself. For the record though, it should only be made with champagne. The below recipe lists both champagne and prosecco. Wanna know how I feel about champagne? Check out my interview with the experts here.. after this post though.

Black Velvet

YIELD: Makes 1


  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) chilled Champagne or prosecco
  • 2 ounces (1/4 cup) chilled Guinness Extra Stout


  1. 1 Pour the Champagne into a flute or other tall glass.
  2. 2 Pour the Guinness on top. (Guinness is heavier. If you mix it the other way around, it won’t combine evenly and will need to be stirred.)

Until Next Time…
