  • Half a flute of Champagne
  • Half of a flute of Guinness Foreign Extra Stout

PREPARATION:

  2. A curiously silky, velvety drink where the effervescence and dry biscuit notes of sparkling wine provide a curious coupling with Guinness® Extra Stout, served in a Champagne flute for a touch of decadence.
