I had my first GUINNESS last year in Dublin and I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. Now, I’m a big fan.

It’s great to be able to experiment with it in different ways. Give the cocktail and go and let me know what you think!

The Black Velvet – How To

  1. Start by mixing the Cassis with the Guinness to increase the density of the GUINNESS.
  2. Slowly pour the GUINNESS/ Cassis mix down the side of a flute until it half fills the glass.
  3. Top with Sparkling Wine, poured over a bar spoon.

Top Tip: Make sure all the ingredients are chilled beforehand.
