Las night we discovered kick-ass drink. Ladies and gentlemen, we would like to introduce… Oh, snap! Cut! We need to warn you first because it’s not a soft drink. Kids, remember – don’t drink and drive. It’s bad for ya and you will disappoint Uncle Sam. Now, we don’t want to disappoint Him, bearded badass, boss of the USA, destroyer of the worlds, lord of the board, doom of the terrorists, master of disaster, servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the Flame of Anor (or was it Gandalf? another bearded badass?) etc. etc., want we?
Ok, you’ve got the idea I hope ;) Back to the merits of the case. Ladies and gentlemen hereby I present you:
One cool drink. It’s beer cocktail to be more accurate. Simple and cool – need something more? Below you can see snapshot of the awesome Black Velvet.
What is the recipe of this fine drink? Here it comes:
For dark part:
Guinness, stout, porter or any other dark and bitter bear
For light part:
Champagne, sparkling white wine, cider or perry
If you’ve got original ingredients half fill a glass of your choice with Guinness and gently pour the champagne over the back of a spoon so the liquid runs down the sides. In this way you will avoid mixing of two liquids (at least in theory – it’s not that easy). If you want you can swap dark and light layers. If you will replace champagne with cider or perry it will be called Poor Man’s Black Velvet. In our version we’ve used sparkling white wine and porter beer. Of course we couldn’t manage to avoid mixing of the liquids so we just had Mixed Black Velvet – you can call it blasphemy if you want, but it was delicious, anyway :]
Something for history geeks:
Black Velvet was invented at Brooks’ Club, St James’s Street, London, in 1861- to mourn the sudden death of Prince Albert, the consort of Queen Victoria. In Germany, it’s also known as the Bismarck – the Iron Chancellor supposedly drink it in large quantities. It don’t surprise me – it’s gorgeous :)
Yesterday we have seen three movies drinking this miracle all night long. Concerning movies:
That’s all folks! For now ;)
TL;DR Try Black Velvet if you are legal ;)
