The Black Velvet cocktail is a favorite of St. Patrick's Day revelers everywhere, as it takes a classic Guinness stout (you can use any, but that's the most popular) and adds a celebratory dose of champagne or sparkling wine to make it feel festive. It's bubbly, satisfying, and sure to be a hit with folks who are tired of just drinking beer with green food coloring in it.
