Believe it or not Halloween is right around the corner. You know what else coming up? International Stout Day, which is on November 3rd. We wanted to share with you the perfect *pint* holiday cocktail.

Legend has it, a Guinness cocktail called Black velvet was originally created after the death of Prince Albert, the husband and consort of Queen Victoria in 1861.

At Brooks’s, a private society clubhouse in London, the steward requested for the Champagne to be dressed in black, in mourning of the Prince’s passing. Since the cocktail drink was initially created, Black Velvet has become a timeless cocktail requested year round.

Black Velvet

A curiously silky, velvety drink where the effervescence and dry biscuit notes of sparkling wine provide a curious coupling with Guinness Extra Stout, served in a Champagne flute for a touch of decadence. A picture of the drink is attached!

Ingredients

Half a flute of Champagne

Half a flute of Guinness Extra Stout
