Burek is basically a hand held pie made of filo pastry dough (puff pastry without the puff) and filled with meat, cheese, and in some cases spinach, potatoes, or apple slices. Typically enjoyed for lunch, you can find this one-hand wonder just about anywhere and it will be filling enough to hold you over until your next bite. The other thing I love about Burek is that it's relatively easy to make (unless you're determined to make your own dough). If you want to make some to watch the game, there are tons of recipes online.

The Crocktail is the country's first national cocktail! Most national cocktails are made with native liquors or feature a native fruit. The Crocktail includes a Marachino liqueur flavored with their local maraska cherries, sour cherry juice, candied orange flavors and lemon. A fruity libation to add to your drinking for the World Cup that's light and refreshingly sweet.
