Football inspired drinks and cocktails

It’s been a long four years since the Euros last took place, and the country is finally ready for another competitive sporting tournament. With great competition comes great food, and the Euros will increase food purchases and restaurant / bar visits. To help you in your preparation for the big games ahead, here’s some sporting drinks and cocktails you can enjoy throughout the tournament.

If you’re rooting for the home team, take a sip of French colours in this liqueur based, multi-layered cocktail.

Often named Buck’s Fizz, this classic Mimosa contains orange juice and Champagne and originates from France.

Get into the Italian spirit with this classic Bellini – a sparkling combination of Prosecco and peach purée.

Brave the Belgian side by drinking a classic Duvel – one of Belgium’s most iconic beers. This strong pale ale has notes of yeast and dough with a bread-like aura.

Celebrate Turkish triumph with this Swinging Sultan cocktail. It features Raki; an anise flavoured alcoholic drink often served with a Turkish meze.

Last but not least, drinking the quintessentially British pint of lager is the best way to celebrate the Euros if you’re backing England. Craft beers offer a wide variety of tastes and flavours that branded beers can’t yet achieve.
