Yay! It’s the Guinness red velvet cocktail recipe! Very delicious and super easy since it only has 2 ingredients.
Before I get into this red velvet cocktail, I want to talk about the trip to Ireland Christopher and I took last year. I’ve been thinking about that trip a lot lately because one of my friends is on a work assignment in the land of Guinness for a good amount of time.
I wrote about this already in this post, but it does bear repeating.
When Christopher and I landed in Dublin, it was early morning and we took the advice of a few people by eating breakfast and then taking a nap.
We set our alarm and took a 2 hour nap. After we pulled ourselves together, we had lunch, did some sightseeing, had a normal supper and miraculously made it until 8:30 PM before allowing ourselves to go to sleep. The thing I thought was strange is that we both woke up around midnight and we were up for a few hours.
Then we crashed again and the next thing I knew, Christopher was nudging me awake. He showed me the time on his phone. It was 12:06 PM. I blinked a few times. YIKES. It was like Christopher hit me with a cattle prod because I sprang out of bed and stumbled around the room, trying to get my bearing.
Why I jumped out of bed, I have no clue. Christopher was chuckling at me from his comfy place on the bed.
We slept for 14 hours, not including the midnight break. We must have needed the sleep!
On to the recipe.
The Ingredients for the Red Velvet Cocktail and the Mixing
Guinness and Champagne. That’s it!
Since there are only two ingredients, I wanted to feature the champagne too.
Time to start.
I take out a champagne flute and fill it half way with Guinness. But, before I show you the photo, I want to point out my bottle opener. See it on the right? I’ve had this forever. I can’t remember for sure where I got it but I think it was my grandmother Bena’s.
STOUT IS MY FRIEND
Okay, on to the photo of the Guinness in the champagne flute.
Next, I open the champagne and pour it over the Guinness.
Let’s take the booze out of the background and see it by itself.
And now for the vertical view. Look at the head on that cocktail!
I pick up the glass and sip it. Yummy!
Christopher tastes it as well but he doesn’t like it.
As I’ve often said, what does he know? 😉
I hope you enjoyed this Guinness red velvet cocktail recipe.
And as always, may all your dishes/drinks be delish!
