Drink the World Cup | Germany vs. Portugal


A European match up for a change.

Nope, it's not going to be a shot of Jägermeister for Germany, at least not at lunchtime on a Monday. If it's warm out and it is in Brazil, a pilsner is the perfect quencher. I really love Augustiner from Munchen because it's light, crisp, and not too hoppy. A much more bitter expression of pilsner is Jever.

For Portugal, it's back to national drinks. Ginjinha is a liqueur made by infusing sour cherries in alcohol (aguardente). It's served as a shot with some fruit in the bottom of the glass.
