Chocolate Black Velvet Champagne Cocktail

It's called a Black Velvet, and with its elegant layers of chocolate, bubbly, and beer, it's the perfect party cocktail to please every taste!


1/2 ounce chocolate syrup (recipe below)
1 ounce stout beer
3 ounces champagne or sparkling wine
1 dash orange bitters
1 twist orange zest

Chocolate syrup (makes 2 cups):
2 cups water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 ounce chopped dark chocolate, at least 70% cocoa solids
seeds from 1 vanilla bean


To make the chocolate syrup, combine water, sugar, cocoa powder, chocolate, and vanilla seeds in a saucepan and bring to a boil. 
Remove from heat, strain, and let cool. 
For the cocktail, pour chocolate syrup into a champagne glass. 
Add stout. Pour champagne slowly into glass over the back of a metal spoon to "float" it on top of the stout. 
Add bitters and garnish with orange zest.
