2019 Women’s World Cup: 40+ Cocktails To Enjoy While Rooting For Your Favorite Team

It wouldn’t be a FIFA Women’s World Cup without a cold, tasty drink. As the USWNT tries to bring home its second consecutive championship, here are some cocktail recipes to make you feel like you scored the game-winning goal.

Is there anything better than watching some of the best soccer in the world with a cold drink and some of your closest friends by your side? With the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup kicking off on June 7, the month-long tournament means there will be plenty of chances to watch some world-class football action while drinking some top-notch cocktails. While soccer/football usually goes hand-in-hand with beer, it’s time to step up your game. So, if you’re ducking out for an early happy hour to watch Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan, Carli Lloyd and the rest of the USWNT’s run for the cup, or if you’re hosting a gameday viewing party, here are some drink ideas to help turn your cocktail glass into your own “World Cup.”

There are drinks here for most every team competing in this year’s competition, so there’s a cocktail for every supporter at your soccer bash. However, since the spirit of the games is to promote equality and unity, don’t let these details of “which drink come from what country” or “should I stick to this spirit while I’m supporting that team” divide your party. After all, the World Cup is best when everybody is invited to the bash. So, drink up! (and drink responsibly.)
