Uruguay: Street Food Bite and Booze of the 2014 World Cup




Cows and soccer are the main concerns of the natives on the next stop of the street food guide to the FIFA World Cup 2014. Uruguay (playing England at 2pm CDT), an extremely agrarian place, has more cow inhabitants than it does humans. Nestled between the two large, bold countries of Brazil and Argentina, Uruguay lives off of the land and has a fancy for grilled meats and futbol. Chivitos and the "Keep It Up" are on the menu today.

The popular Chivitos sandwich is a doozie stacked with steak, ham, pancetta, cheese, eggs and a bunch of other delicious accompaniments. It does have veggies so it's...balanced. Guaranteed to fill you up, this sammie is a meal hearty enough to feed the fittest soccer player, so don't snack too much during the match.

The Uruguayans are actually big champagne and wine drinkers. The Keep It Up is a cocktail combining champagne, cognac, orange juice and bitters. Easy to make and easy to drink-- the fruitiness compliments the effervescence of the champagne.
