The Diesel cocktail is a blend of lager, cider and blackcurrant cordial. How good it tastes depends a little on the quality of the lager. You can get by with cheap stuff, but using something like Harp will make it a lot tastier.

Diesel drink in pilsner glass

The flavor here is bitter, tart and sweet, in that order. It’s actually fairly complex. This recipe has the feel of something created by college students on a budget, but if you like a deep dark lager, it might surprise you.


  • 1/2 pint lager
  • 1/2 pint cider
  • 1 dash blackcurrant cordial

Pour the lager into a pint glass, followed by the blackcurrant cordial. Fill up the rest of the way with the cider.
