A Cocktail called FIFA
There are infinite ways of enjoying any sport. The fact that it's FIFA just adds more fuel to the fire (in a positive way of course). So ranging from house parties to watching a game in a sports bar is like a ritual for any football fanatic. But, no matter how fantastic it feels, sometimes even that ritual could get slightly monotonous. That’s why, it’s time to mix things up a little and make a cocktail out of the ordinary, turning up the fun-notch a little. Final countdown has officially begun and today, we'll suggest a few fun concoctions that would be the perfect mash ups with our top 4 FIFA football teams.
Spotted Bikini for Spain: As a fan, first thing that comes to your mind when you think of Spain is the 2010 World Cup. As a football fanatic/party maniac, other things come to your mind too, like classical spanish music, Flamenco (tap dance) and of course, Running of the Bulls fest. It's all about making the game a little more interesting and what better way there is than downing a cocktail that represents your loyalty to the team & slightly the colour of their national flag. Sip a glass of 'Spotted Bikini' & next thing you know, for the next 90 minutes, you'd be chanting La Furia Española (the Spanish Fury as the nickname of the reigning champions go by) along with the company of some fruity and heady chilled cocktail.

Vonamor Passion for Germany: And now comes the aggressors. When you think of Germany, you think of Oktoberfest, Volkswagen, Adolf Hitler, huge castles & Oliver Kahn (nobody can forget this German goalkeeper). As a true Germany fan, you can’t simply sit back and watch the game. Your passion should match the heights of passion this team possesses. Create a shot glass of Vonamor Passion Vonamor Red. This combination of vodka, orange juice, grenadine and lime juice not only, surprisingly, represents the colour of the German national flag, but is also an enjoyable slightly tangy vodka cocktail that seems very apt for summers and the beautiful venue called Brazil.

Pomegranate Cranberry Bellinis for Portugal: Vasco da Gama, the famous Port Wine, the sunny weather, beautiful beaches of Algarve & the unstoppable the dynamic Portugal’s captain Cristiano Ronaldo. It is true that Portugal has yet to make a mark as the FIFA World Cup champions, but that doesn’t mean that this team doesn’t have its fair share (large share) of loyal fans all over the world. There is a reason why Portugal is number 3 in the FIFA ranks. As a Portugal fan, it is like an unspoken law, you have to hold a glass of wine while watching a game. So to show your loyalty to the team & enjoy some sports time, have a glass of chilled Pomegranate and Cranberry Bellinis. It’s red, it’s green, it’s fruity & it will amplify your enthusiasm levels.

Celebration Planter’s Punch for Brazil: And then we have Brazil. 4th in FIFA ranks yet the most successful football team of all teams, even Spain. Unlimited things come up when one thinks of Brazil, the most prominent & common one being Ronaldo, Kaka & the team being 5 times world champions. This country’s also the definition of partying, carnival, fun in the sun along with a must visit to Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo & the magnificent Salvador beaches. Excitement never stops and neither does the party, which means for a loyal fun-loving fan (even if you’re not, you will become one; the magic of Brazil), a fun-tastic sip of Celebration Planter’s Punch is the perfect way to wind down and chant Brazilllll! Brazilll! *clap clap clap*!
