Black Licorice Velvet

Serves 1
Time 5 min
A Black Velvet, traditionally made with Guinness and Champagne, was first created in London in 1861 to mourn the death of Prince Albert. Adding a drizzle of homemade Black Licorice Syrup (and richly flavored oatmeal or chocolate stout) creates a molasses-scented elixir that’s anything but somber. These potent drinks make a perfect kickoff and accompaniment to a hearty English- or Irish-inspired brunch (pass the bangers and mash) or a Sunday roast.
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup stout, preferably oatmeal or chocolate, chilled
  • 1 teaspoon Black Licorice Syrup, chilled
  • 1/4 cup dry sparkling wine, chilled
  • Black licorice strip for garnish (optional)
