But while planning my St. Patrick's Day party, I knew that I couldn't really get away with not serving it. And so, I brought home a few six packs of Guinness and tried to figure out a way to make it work.
That's when I came across the Black Velvet cocktail--a simple 50/50 mix of Guinness and bubbly (Prosecco, in my case, though Champagne is of course also lovely).
Now that is definitely my style.
I served it at the party, and it was a surprising hit. The bubbles mellow out the beer and final drink comes across as somewhat refreshing, and even a bit fruity.
