Top definition
A type of cocktail drunk as a test of courage by members of a brass band. It is made typically by taking one shot of every spirit available behind the bar into a pint glass, and then topping it up with a mixture of lager and cider ('snakebite').

Occasionally, it is used to fill trophy cups after a major contest victory.
