3 MANLY DRINKS TO ORDER IN A LONDON PUB THAT WON’T MAKE YOU SEEM LIKE A SISSY, MARY AMERICAN.

About to walk into a seedy London pub and with zero knowledge of man’s man drinks? Fear not. Here are 3 pints you can order without worrying if the locals are going chuck darts in your direction.



SNAKE BITE: Made with 1 part cider (alcoholic apple juice) and 1 part lager. Prove your knowledge by asking the barkeep if he (or she) is going to add a dash of blackcurrant cordial, "black". It's a custom in some areas. FYI...has a very sharp taste, hence the name.



DARK and SMOOTH: Guinness beer mixed with Port wine. A bit on the strong side. Good order for top of the line bars as well as the down and dirties.



BLACK and TAN: The most popular of the beer bunch. B&T is a stout mixed with a lager. If it’s done right you’ll see the two beers separate. Smooth and bitter peacefully coexisting.
