Brazil: Street Food Bite and Booze of the World Cup






After that horrible loss to Germany, Brazil is competing for third place against the Netherlands at 3pm today. Their people may be hungry for the trophy, but from the looks of their cuisine, they aren't hungry for much else. Today along the street food guide to the FIFA World Cup 2014, we're taking a look at Pão de Queijo and the Caipirinha!

Pão de Queijo is Brazilian cheese bread. They're tiny, buttery bread balls with a hint of cheese inside. If that doesn't sound like game time snack food, I don't know what does! This recipe makes two dozen, which may not be enough once you've realized their greatness. The best part is you can find most of these ingredients already in your pantry except for the special flower. I recommend La Morenita on Florida Boulevard for all of your hard to find Latin-American ingredients. These little bread bites are super easy to make and quick to disappear.

If you've never had a proper Caipirinha, shame on you. They're very simple to make, a fun alternative to the typical mojito, and crazy delicious. Go to Calandro's Supermarket and grab a heap of limes and a couple of bottles of Leblon Cachaça (a sugar cane spirit) and go to town! Simply slice half of a lime up and muddle it with two teaspoons of sugar in the bottom of your glass, throw in some rocks, and fill your glass with cachaça.
