El Jimador Tequila Shoots Farewell to World Cup

argThe World Cup that seems to have begun sometime during Prohibition is finally winding down. Maybe it’s time to raise a glass to that time every four years when the world goes crazy for its favorite game as America pretends to give a monkey’s cuss about soccer.

The folks at el Jimador Tequila sent along some quick shot recipes to help you send a “salud” or a “cheers” or a “Prost” or whatever else you shout while you toss doe nasty booze down your esophagus. As you’ll see, the country-themed shots are based on each nation’s flag.

El Jimador tells us that you needn’t pour any of these for that guy banned for biting that other guy.
