A snakebite is a cocktail drink from the United Kingdom made with equal parts of lager and cider. If a dash of blackcurrant cordial is added, it is known as a "snakebite & black" or a "diesel". Different regional recipes and names exist. Stout may be used instead of lager in the United States and is typically served in a pint glass.
Fill a chilled beer glass halfway full with cider.
Top the cider with beer—preferably lager or stout.
