Start with the Strongbow, fill the sleeve half way. Carefully pour in the Guinness so it floats on top. If you're not big on Guinness, make it 2/3 Strongbow and top it with Guinness.

This drink is refreshing and not as 'heavy' as stout alone. I occasionally use it to introduce friend to stout who think they won't like such a heavy beer.

It's a great drink, but what's the trick to pour it so they don't mix? Does it need to be Guinness from a tap, or will a can work as well?

The trick to pouring really should have been mentioned in this recipe. The process is to first pour the Strongbow with as little head as possible. Then, take a spoon that has been bent so that it can fit down into the glass over the beer (with the back curve of the spoon facing upwards) and slowly pour the Guinness (canned is fine) over the spoon. This will keep the beers from mixing together, and cause the Guinness to float on the top.
I, personally, find this to be an excellent drink. It tastes great, has my favorite beer (Guinness) in it, and you can drink substantially more than if you were drinking just the beer. A winner, for sure.
