A MARIO BATALI RECIPE

Black Velvet

Black Velvet_03_02_2017_7

The Black Velvet is said to have been first consumed in London’s Brooks’s Club, in 1861, to mourn the death of Prince Albert. But I bet that the publicans in Killarney would dispute that provenance of a drink made from Ireland’s finest draft beverage.


Ingredients

Makes 1 drink

6 ounces dark stout beer

6 ounces Prosecco

Directions

Fill half a pilsner glass with cold stout and then carefully pour Prosecco over a spoon to fill to the top without mixing. It’s a perfect way to start brunch.

 

If you want to get extra fancy and serve black velvets in champagne flutes, reduce the ingredients as appropriate–just keep the same 1:1 ratio of beer and champagne.
