The Black Velvet is an interesting mixed drink that combines ​​Champagne and beer. One may think this an unlikely combination but it's actually quite good and some people prefer it with more Champagne rather than the 1:1 mix in this recipe.

Supposedly the Black Velvet was created by a London steward and served while the country was in mourning over the 1861 death of Queen Victoria's husband.

The drink is such a hit that it has inspired a few companies to bottle similar mixes over the years. However, it's rare that these last long on the market. That really is not a surprise since it's such an easy mix that anyone can pull off.

What You'll Need

  • 4 ounces Champagne
  • 4 ounces chilled stout

How to Make It

  1. Pour the Champagne into a beer mug, pint glass, or Champagne flute.
  2. Slowly pour the stout on top.
