So, Germany v Argentina. Sunday 8pm. An excuse for a world cup party/TV gathering/Monday morning fuzzy head we think. To celebrate this momentous occasion our friends at brilliant bar blog BarChick have picked the perfect football-themed cocktail to kick the festivities off. Now all you need to do is decide who you'll be rooting for...
(That’s 'cheers' in German/Spanish)
WORLD CLASS BEACH BUM
A spicy cross between the Brazilian classic Caipirinha and a Mojito, the World Class Beach Bum is made with Abelha Cachaca, fresh lime juice, agave syrup, mint leaves, soda and some spicy red chilli. POW.

Score!
