Euro 2016 has started, and we couldn’t be happier about it.
It’s not the necessarily the football we’re into. We just love the fact that there are loads of good excuses to go for a drink in the middle of the day.
Yeah, sports and cocktails just seem made for each other. It makes you wonder, what would they be like if they were each other.
Here’s what it would be like if sports were cocktails.
Tennis is the Gin ‘n’ Juice
Beefeater Gin, elderflower liqueur, strawberry purée and Ting. Have you ever heard of a combination so Wimbledon? You might as well be drinking dew from the grass on the center court.
Golf is the Not So Old Fashioned
Golf is a refined, high-brow activity that’s meant to be enjoyed alone. A bit like our Not So Old Fashioned, made with Licor 43, Jack Daniel’s bourbon, orange bitters and sugar. It’s not that you can’t enjoy it with friends, but if you’re after a bit of broody pondering at the bar, this stiff cocktail is a hole in one.
Volleyball is the Captain Coconut
Sand. Sun. Sea. It’s all embodied in this cocktail loaded with beach vibes (on top of the Kraken and Malibu rums, banana liqueur, and pineapple and orange juices). It’s like Baywatch in a glass.
Darts is the Vodka Rev Bull
Yeah, it’s only Red bull and Stoli vodka, but it takes an expert to make it a proper cocktail. Just like it takes a pro to make a simple, low-effort activity like darts look like a proper sport.
Football is the Bramble
There’s nothing more British than football, and there’s no cocktail more British than the Bramble, invented by a London bartender in 1984. Made using Tanqueray gin and lemon juice drizzled with blackberry liqueur, this is the perfect way to celebrate a spiffingly good game of footy with the chaps.
Rugby is The Atomic Bongo
It’s a massive bucket of Bacardi and Wary & Nephew rums mixed with Teichenné Coconut schnapps, pineapple, passion fruit and popping candy. It’s meant to be for two people, but massive rugby players can drink this as a shot to get the evening started.
Wrestling is the Bubblegum Daiquiri
Yeah, we know wrestling is totally superficial and no one could withstand a tombstone piledriver without being hospitalised for a year. But do we care? Not at all. We love it. Just like we love how the Bubblegum Daiquiri is bright blue, tastes like Bubblegum and is covered in flying saucer sweets.
Our cocktail menu is so extensive, we’ve got a drink to reflect every sport in the world.
Apart from Finland’s wife-carrying sport tradition. We haven’t come up with a cocktail as weird as that yet.
But we’re definitely working on it. Don’t you worry about that.
