Hot tub and spa company HotSpring World has created a fun piece of illustrated content featuring iconic cocktails associated with each participating country. Football lovers can whip up a wide variety of concoctions, ranging from the Brazilian Caipirinha to Peruvian Pisco Sours, with 32 recipes for alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
Some of the featured cocktails are emblematic of the country with which they are associated, like the traditional English Pimm’s Cup; others make the most of ingredients local to each region, such as the Mimosa, made from France’s most famous export, Champagne. So, whether you plan on sipping a Margarita to get into the football spirit, or to conjure up visions of Mexican beaches, there’s something for everyone.
Lynda Smart from HotSpring World says: “The World Cup brings the opportunity of getting together with family and friends to watch top footballers represent their countries. What can be better than good company, excellent entertainment and a refreshing beverage? Our cocktail guide celebrates the diverse cultures of each competing country. Of course, not everyone will be glued to the action on screen, but a party is a good opportunity to take advantage of the (hopefully) summery weather and soak up the party atmosphere.”
The beautifully illustrated guide, complete with lists of all the ingredients you’ll need for your cocktail extravaganza, is the perfect resource for those planning a World Cup party, whether you are a football fanatic or a reluctant spectator. The guide will ensure you know what you should be drinking when each team plays. Here’s what you’ll be sipping for the first few games:
- Russia v Saudi Arabia: Moscow Mules and Saudi Champagne
- Egypt v Uruguay: Red Seas and Clericos
- France v Australia: Mimosas and Fairy Floss Windmills
- Tunisia v England: Arab Springs and Pimm’s
So crack out the flag bunting, gather your friends around and get creative with your cocktail shaker.
