Black Velvet

Black Velvet cocktail with sparkling white wine and stout beer

This drink goes way back, possibly earlier than the 1940s. Older recipes call for an even mix of sparkling wine (ideally Champagne) and stout, but we’re with Gaz Regan (in his book The Joy of Mixology) in thinking the stout should be reduced for a better balance and flavor.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
