Elderberries

There are many cocktails made using Guinness one of the nicest being Black and Black which is made simply by adding a shot of blackcurrant cordial into a pint of Guinness.

As originally the Guinness brewery brewed a porter and not a stout I like to make my variation of Black and Black, an Elderberry Black and Black using a porter instead of Guiness and some elderberry liqueur instead of blackcurrant cordial. One of my favourite porters is made by Anchor brewery and that works very well with elderberries as does Sam Smiths Famous Taddy Porter or for a touch of decidance try and old ale such as Havestions Ola Dubh Special Reserve. To make an Elderberry Black and Black make the drink below and pour a shot of it into a glass full of porter, stout or old ale.
