So, Ear Injury discovered a lovely drink a few months ago called a Black Velvet (or more accurately a Poor Man’s Black Velvet, the “real” one replaces cider with Champagne) which is hard cider and Guinness. It is a LOVELY LOVELY thing. The idea of it is to have there be an equal amount of cider and Guinness.
Well, here’s one for the bartender hall of fame—the Flat Top Black Velvet.
Perhaps it’s a nod to our troops? A result of a slow Guinness tap? Someone who thinks that a girl can’t handle Guinness? Insanity? Whatever it is…..it made us giggle.
Giggling is good!
