Celebrate St Patrick’s Day in style!


 Black Velvet Cocktail

½ flute of champagne

½ flute of guiness

According to the official Guiness website this famous drink was invented in 1861 at Brook’s Club in London. Everybody was in mourning for the late Prince Albert and the steward at the club decided that even the champagne should be put into mourning and mixed it with Guiness.

To make, pour the chilled champagne into the bottom of a flute or other suitable glass. To retain a colour separation add the chilled guiness slowly by running it down the back of a large spoon.

We have garnished ours with some wild lucky plum sorrel. Baby shamrocks for the luck of the Irish!
Top of the morning to you all!
