Even if you’re not a fan of the deep, dark Irish stout, why not try a Guinness cocktail. These recipes come straight from the Guinness archives.
This classic Guinness cocktail was invented at the death of Prince Albert in 1861. A steward at the Brook’s Club in London proclaimed that even the champagne should be put into mourning and so Guinness was added to the bubbly, et voilà, the Black Velvet was born.
