It's made in Britain and in L.A. pubs such as the Cat & Fiddle by adding a bit of Ribena, a noncarbonated British soft drink (available in some British import shops).

  • 1 (11.2-ounce) bottle cold hard cider
  • 2 tablespoons black currant liqueur (optional)

Step 1Pour half a bottle of the lager and half a bottle of the hard cider into each of two 12-ounce or larger glasses. Add a tablespoon of black currant liqueur to each drink. Stir.
