3 shots out of 5
Finally! Finally I can say, "Tomorrow is the Super Bowl!!". Oh we have been waiting 18 years for this game. We are all super excited to watch it tomorrow. I found this recipe for Cheesy Bacon Oven Chips through a pin on Pinterest today and decided that I am going to be making them for the game tomorrow (super excited about that too!!).
I gave tonight's cocktail 3 shots out of 5. I had found this cocktail by following links and ended up on Liquor.com where, ahem, I am a contributor! Once I made this cocktail, photographed it and took my first few sips, my husband came into the kitchen and said, "Oh you used the Stout Guinness". Apparently (which I didn't realize) the one in the bottle is the stout (which I've never had) and the one in the can is the draught (which I've had). I didn't realize that there were different ones. Now knowing this, I will assume that if I had used the draught Guinness this cocktail would have tasted quite a bit better. The stout is more carbonated where the draught is smoother and doesn't really taste carbonated at all. If you do make this cocktail, I recommend using the draught and using a champagne that you like, one that isn't terribly sweet.
Here is the recipe for a Black Velvet:
- Guinness draught beer
In a tall beer glass, fill half way with Guinness. Then over the back of a spoon fill the last half of your glass with champagne.
Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to another beer cocktail. They are fun and I do enjoy them for a change.
Cheers!! Go Niners!!!! And yes I have had the "Black Velvet" song in my head ever since I decided to make this cocktail.
