Pour 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.

Use a high-quality imported lager such as Harp and a high-quality imported hard cider such as Blackthorne, both widely available in bottles. If you add the optional black currant liqueur (cassis), you’ll have a version of a drink called Snakebite and Black. 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).
