From the Bartender

One of the more royal drinks in our database, The Black Velvet recipe was originally created by the bartender of London's Brook's Club to mourn the death of Prince Albert - the husband of Queen Victoria. The addition of stout beer gives the drink a dark coloring that's meant to symbolize the black or purple clothing and armbands that mourners wore at the funeral.
