Choripan is a typical snack or lunch item in Argentina. Similar to the American hot dog, Choripan is a link of chorizo on a freshly baked bun dressed with fresh chimichurri. Both of these ingredients can be found around town and make for the most hopped up hot dog you've had in a while. Chimichurri is a sauce composed of oil, lime juice, spicy peppers, parsley, garlic, and oregano. It's simple to make and delicious on numerous eats. This is a perfect item to serve up for the match!

The Argentina Cocktail has a lot of ingredients and a lot of deliciousness. Gin and vermouth come together with bitters and orange juice to make a flavorful drink. It's herbal and fruity, which is perfect for a day of watching other people run around and kick a ball back and forth while you sit in an air conditioned room. It's the final day of the World Cup so make a few drinks, eat a lot, and soak it in!
