    On Black Velvets, because of the carbonation in the Sparkling wine, its easier to add the guinness to a 1/2 glass of sparkling than the other way around. The spoon only is useful if you want to float guinness, it won't help with the heavier(sweeter)wine!

    After you get a massive moussey head, try our way!
