10 World Cup-Inspired Cocktails

Good news for your next World Cup party: The Travelling Gin Company whipped up 32 cocktails for the 32 countries competing. What better way to celebrate the blending of countries and cultures than by blending drinks? Some cocktails are new inventions inspired by flavors indigenous to the respective countries, while others are new takes on old classics. Now you can watch a game with appropriate drinks for both sides.

1. Brazil: Maracujá Caipirinha

As the home country, with 5 titles under its belt, it might be a safe bet to invest in a lot of the ingredients to make this one.

Recipe: "Cut 1 & 1/2 limes into wedges and place into the bottom of a rocks glass with a teaspoon of brown sugar. Muddle the ingredients together and follow up by filling your glass 3/4 full with crushed ice. gently stir all and add 50ml of Cachaça. Finally add more crushed ice to fill the glass up to the max and a final stir.

For a finishing touch we like to open up a passion fruit (maracujá) and pour the seeds and juice goodness over the top of the ice and garnish with a slice of lime. For extra sweetness add more brown sugar to meet your taste."

2. Argentina: Messi Pomelo

Argentina has one of the best players in the world, so it's only fitting for their drink to be named after him. Celebrate Lionel Messi with this tart summer drink.

Recipe: "50ml gin, 15ml Pink Grapefruit, 10ml White Grapefruit, 10ml Red Grapefruit, 10ml basil syrup…shake all together well in a ice filled cocktail shaker.

Strain and serve. The intense sweet, sour and tart flavour from the grapefruits works perfectly on a summer’s day, but if too strong for some, simply add some soda water and pour on ice."

3. USA: The American Cream

USA! USA! What's more American than beer and puns?

Recipe: "Add 25ml good quality bourbon, 15ml lemon juice & 15ml cream soda cordial with plenty of ice in a cocktail shaker.

Gently shake ingredients a few times and strain. Top with a classic American lager. You want ratios of around 1 part cocktail mix to 3 parts beer."

4. Costa Rica: Pinto’s Tico Sour

This drink is named after the team's coach, Jorge Luis Pinto.

Recipe: "50ml Cacique Guaro (alternatively use more widely available Cachaça), juices of half a lemon, half a lime and half an orange, teaspoon of brown sugar and an egg white. Combine all in ice filled shaker and shake heavily until very very cold. Strain into your glass of choice with a couple of dashes of Angostura bitters."

5. Italy: Negroni Sbagliato

Recipe: "Equal parts Campari, Sweet Vermouth & prosecco on ice. orange wedge for garnish."

6. Russia: Raspberryoska

It's not a good Russian cocktail without vodka and the country's signature color: red!

Recipe: "50ml good quality vodka, 25ml freshly pressed raspberry juice, 15ml lime juice. Some soda water to top your glass. garnish with some mint and a raspberry or two."

7. Nigeria: The Chapman

The Chapman is Nigeria's signature drink, so it's only fitting to drink a version of it while watching them play. This drink might also work while watching Orange is the New Black.

Recipe: "In a pitcher full of ice, add blackcurrant cordial (we prefer to avoid brand names, but Ribena does work best), a dash of grenadine syrup, the juice of an orange, a lemon and a lime. Add cucumber slices and pour half a can of Sprite and half a can of Fanta - finish off the national party cocktail of Nigeria with fresh mint and 3-4 drops of Angostura Bitters.

Vodka can be added to this otherwise non-alcoholic sweet punch."

8. France: Les Bleus ‘75

Appropriately named after their team, this drink incorporates lots of blue(berries).

Recipe: "Gin, lemon juice, St Germain Elderflower liqueur, champagne top. Garnish with blueberries."

9. England: Bramble ROYale

Feel like royalty while sipping on this cocktail that incorporates the team manager, Roy Hodgson, in the name.

Recipe: "50ml gin, 20ml lemon juice, 15ml sugar syrup & 20ml blackberry liqueur on lots of ice, topped with a splash of English sparkling wine. Garnished with blackberries and lemon slice."

10. Spain: Sevilla Gin Tonic

Spain might not being doing as well as expected, but at least fans can find comfort at the bottom of this citrus drink.

Recipe: "Fill a hi-ball glass with plenty of ice.Add 50ml gin (we recommend Xoriguer Mahon) and a heaped teaspoon of Seville Orange marmalade. Mix well and top with a Traditional Tonic Water. Garnish with Seville orange slices and tarragon."

How to Make a Black Russian

With coffee liqueur and vodka, it's less of a dessert cocktail than a White Russian.

  1. Stir ingredients with ice in a mixing glass.
  2. Strain into an Old Fashioned glass over fresh ice.

You've heard of the White Russian. Heavy with Kahlúa, guzzled by Dudes, decadently sweet. The Black Russian is basically that, but less frivolous. And you can probably guess from name alone what the difference is. A White Russian is swirled with heavy cream, while a Black Russian. isn't. It is simply coffee liqueur and vodka, no white in sight, making it less like a dessert and more like an alcoholic wake-me-up. Traditionally, the Black Russian calls for Kahlúa as well, but get crazy and go for one of the craft coffee liqueurs (all with decidedly more stylish bottles) that have begun to pop up in liquor stores over the past couple of years.

A Little Background

The most-referenced origin story for the Black Russian pegs its creation to a bar in Luxembourg in 1949, where a bartender made it in tribute to the American ambassador to the tiny country, Perle Mesta. Perle was a Washington, D.C. icon, famous for hosting some of its best parties&mdashHarry S. Truman took over the piano and Dwight D. Eisenhower was known to sing at some of these racous gatherings&mdashand being a fearsome political fundraiser. But she was a Christian Scientist and apparently sober through it all, so it's doubtful she ever tried her drink. Ironic. It's also unclear why vodka and coffee liqueur were chosen in her name, as there's no obvious connection to either. A mystery. Generally speaking, in the mid-1900s, American drinkers were getting accustomed to vodka as an integral bar cart spirit, and the Kahlúa coffee liqueur was the new hot thing, so it makes sense that the Black Russian, rich and strong, caught on.

If You Like This, Try These

The White Russian came after the Black Russian, and so naturally, get some heavy cream to pour into your second drink. And then maybe cut yourself off, as these things are deceptively strong. (For further Russian clout, there's the Moscow Mule, which is an entirely unrelated vodka cocktail.) A Mudslide is a close relative, with Irish cream liqueur, coffee liqueur, and vodka. And so is the Brandy Alexander, with crème de cacao, heavy cream, and brandy.

What You Need

Here&rsquos what you need to do a Black Russian justice, beyond what you might be able to dig out of the fridge or cupboard.

    If you've never had a Paloma before, it's a super refreshing cocktail made with tequila or mezcal, fresh lime juice, grapefruit juice, and club soda-- sort of like a grapefruit margarita. For these Palomas, I followed this recipe, but I used grapefruit White Claw in place of regular club soda.

    If you like Palomas and tequila-based drinks in general, you'll probably love this fresh and zesty cocktail. The grapefruit White Claw adds a little bit of sweetness and a little extra booze. If you like your drinks on the sweeter side, I would also suggesting adding a bit of non-alcoholic grapefruit juice.
