Cocktail: How to Make a Snake Bite

It’s full on summer here in the Cowichan Valley, and that means that it’s time to pour some refreshing summertime cocktails! So today I’ll be sharing with you how to make a Snake Bite.

How to make a Snake Bite

Snake Bite Ingredients:
(makes 2 drinks)

  • Light Beer (preferably a lager)
  • Apple Cider  (my go-to is Strongbow)
  • Fresh lime slices
  • Ice (optional
  • You will also need 2 pint glasses

A Snake Bite is ridiculously easy to make: Half beer, half cider, done!

I got a bit adventurous with my ingredients today and went with a local summer ale from the Vancouver Island Brewery in Victoria, Canada, the Beachcomber Summer Ale. And for the cider today, I went with Fat Chance Cider from Vancouver, Canada.

  • Pour half a beer into each pint glass
  • Top off each glass with cider
  • Garnish each glass with a lime slice
  • Add a few ice cubes if it’s super hot out (optional)

BOOM! You’ve got yourself a Snake Bite!

Now plant your bum in a sunny spot and ENJOY! (Don’t forget to lube up with sunscreen!)

Cheers!
