Black Velvet Cocktail

This famous drink was invented in 1861 at Brook’s Club in London. Prince Albert had died, everyone was in mourning. The story goes that the steward at the club, overcome
with the emotion of the occasion, ordered that even the champagne should be put into mourning and proceeded to mix it with GUINNESS®. The taste was so delicious the Black Velvet quickly became extremely popular.

Black Velvet Coctail



Pour the GUINNESS® Extra Stout into a clean/polished champagne flute. Top up the glass
with the champagne, being careful to ensure there is no overspill. The GUINNESS® Black Velvet should have a good dark colour with a frothy head, resembling a Pint of GUINNESS®.
