This beauty first appeared in London in the 1860s and will help you extend the life of any bottle of Champagne—especially helpful if you're hosting friends/freeloaders.
You will need:
One 12-ounce can or bottle of Guinness
One bottle of Champagne (or a sparkling wine if you don’t feel like splurging)
A Champagne flute
How you make it:
1. Fill your glass halfway with Champagne.
2. Slowly pour the Guinness over the back of a spoon on top of the Champagne (adding the Guinness last will create a very visually cool layering effect). That’s literally it.
