The Best Drinks for Enjoying the 2018 World Cup

Come enjoy the sunshine with us and say “Cheers!” with the best drinks in honor of the 2018 World Cup.

It’s full-on soccer season, and we know that not all soccer fans are in Russia right now to celebrate… because there are some places that are a little less chilly where you can experience your passion for the game.

At Sandos Hotels & Resorts, we invited our Mexico beach resorts get creative and make fun drinks in honor of the flags of the most popular countries that are participating in the 2018 World Cup, and they surprised us!

Remember that the density of the liquors is important in these cocktails because it’s what keeps the colors separate.

We challenge you to try some delicious treats from our World Cup drink list:
