Stout beer and sparkling wine are my two favorite drinks so how could I resist this opportunity to try them together? INCREDIBLE! It has a strong Guinness flavor but softened texture, like a spritzer. I still like both the ingredients separately but this is a fun change. My husband isn't a big dark beer or champagne drinker and enjoyed this. The champagne flavor is completely overpowered so I wouldn't use a good bubbly - a cheaper one that's a day old (but properly capped to preserve the bubbles), or even a nonalcoholic would be fine.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 ounces champagne
  • 4 ounces Guinness stout


  1. When both are quite cold, pour together into a tall glass.
