What We're Drinking This Week

Congratulations to Spain, on their World Cup victory.  The game itself was a dull one, but Spain proved to be the better side.  In the end, one could argue that Cesc Fabregas was the difference maker. 


Fabregas came into the game late, but made a huge difference, giving Spain multiple strike opportunities, and moving the ball upfield quickly and efficiently.  It's a matter of time too, before Fabregas moves from his current squad Arsenal to Barcelona.  But for his injury, he'd likely have played for many more minutes in this World Cup.

There's no doubt Spain deserved to win.  Their road to the final was much harder than the road the Netherlands faced, and, despite what was often-times brutal football to watch, Spain controlled much of the match on Sunday.  As Bill Simmons has said in one of his recent columns, the World Cup should be every 3 years.  I agree.  Anything that equates to more international soccer is a good thing. 

Finally, a word of congratulations to ESPN for a stellar job broadcasting all of the games.  ESPN sent their best talent, hired some of the best British announcers to call the games, and went above and beyond for their American audience.  Well done, very well done, ESPN.

Now that the World Cup is over, we move onto drinking.  This week, we're drinking a couple solid cocktails.

What We're Drinking This Week

- Tuesday:  La Foridita Daiquiri - We're putting the maraschino liqueur to work again, in this unique take on an old classic.  It of course if rum based, but will also feature the aforementioned maraschino liqueur and lime juice, with a touch of sugar thrown in for good measure.  And, it's a frozen one - so ice will be in order.

- Friday:  Shamrock - Irish whiskey, plus creme de menthe and some cream.  Imagine a minty-whiskey milkshake, and you're going to be close to this cocktail. 

I've received some welcome positive feedback on the Aviation, glad it has been such a hit!  Until tomorrow, when we drink La Foridita Dacquiri!
