Portugal: Street Food Bite and Booze of the World Cup





It's time to sit down to another plate of the street food guide to the FIFA World Cup 2014! Portugal, like many cities in Spain, is no stranger to great eats. Today we're going to take a look at something on the sweeter side with some Portuguese custard cups and a banging port cocktail, the Portuguese Daisy!

Pasteis de Nata I are delicious little flaky pastry cups filled with a sweet custard. These may take a decent amount of prep work, but they're perfect for snacking while your watching the match or entertaining for special occasions and holidays. Take a break from those freezer quiche things and try making something fresh!

The Portuguese Daisy highlights Portugal's most popular product: Port. If you've never had port, it's pretty sweet, smooth, and makes wine look like a bandwagon soccer fan who doesn't understand offsides. Port is awesome and this cocktail combines port, brandy, and little citrus to make one heck of a drink! Try it out and let me know what you think by leaving comment or telling me about it on the Facebook Page.
