A Beginner's Lesson in Guinness and Four Cocktails to Get You Started
OK - technically a Black Velvet is a mixture of champagne and Guinness. (Tried it - it's gross.) When it's Guinness over cider, it's a Poor Man's Black Velvet or a Black Adder. (But seriously, when you order it just say Black Velvet. They'll know you mean cider.) Call it whatever you like, the cloying sweetness of the cider is cut perfectly by the subtle malty bitterness of the Guinness. It's a match made in heaven. Drink it. Drink it all the time.
