Crown Float Drink Recipe


Mixing Instructions

Start with the Strongbow, fill the sleeve half way. Carefully pour in the Guinness so it floats on top. If you're not big on Guinness, make it 2/3 Strongbow and top it with Guinness.

This is what's known as the "poor-man's black velvet", btw. So, Chrissie's mix-up is completely understandable.
