England: Street Food Bite and Booze of the World Cup





If you've been to The Londoner to grab a bite and watch the FIFA World Cup 2014 then you've had a few bites from across the pond! England has a beautiful countryside and ton of outlying cities, but in the hustle and bustle of London, street food can be seen on almost every corner. Let's take a look at some pasties and the Union Jack cocktail.

Pasties are little pockets of scrumptious. Similar to meat pies, a traditional pasty is essentially beef stew inside of a puff pastry. If that doesn't make you hungry, I don't know what will! There are tons of variations, and easy to eat on the go! Try out this recipe and let me know how it comes out!

The Union Jack cocktail highlights an English favorite: gin. Gin combined with Sloe Gin, which is gin soaked with fruit (typically plums or dark red fruits) makes for a super red cocktail with flavors of juniper and citrus. This drink has a little sweetness and a lot of booze. Enjoy!
