World Cup 2014: Knock Out Rounds! USA vs Belgium

Holy cow the day is here! Yes, yes, I did not post for yesterday or this mornings match, but not a big deal, I will get to those (even tho matches played).

I took time out just to get this going – I made last minute changes to the drinks as I could not get them out of my head while trying to sleep all night.

And, since it IS Belgium we were facing, I did not want to chince out and go with Beer vs Beer (Sam Adams Boston Lager vs their Belgian Wheat??), so we have PANCAKES vs WAFFLES!

Yes, I bring you the IHOP Pancake Cocktail (International House of PAIN!) for good ol Team USA!

Welcome to the Pancake House of DOOM!

I.H.O.P. Pancake:

  • 3/4oz Bourbon
  • 1/2oz Creme de cacao
  • 1/4 Vanilla Extract
  • 1oz Maple Syrup
  • 1/2oz Apple Jack
  • 1oz Cream or Milk

Shake with ice all ingredients and strain into cocktail glass – garnish with cinnamon and nutmeg.

This drink leaves the pancake aftertaste, with a full frontal Bourbon and Apple Jack delish combo to get you going. I could have as many as possible before dropping of these (anyone want to add to brunch menu?)

For across the pitch with the Belgium’s, went with Waffles of course!

Belgium Waffle:

  • 1/4oz Gingerbread Schnapps
  • 1/2oz Creme de Cacao
  • 1/2oz Maple Syrup
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 1oz Vanilla Vodka
  • 1oz Cream or Milk

Shake with ice and strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with dash of cinnamon.

If you add to much Gingerbread you get a cookie – so, avoid that. This drink is phenomenal and, frankly, one of the top drinks. Better than Pancakes tho?

Hard to pick a winner here – in fact had to go to the peanut gallery and came out a TIE. But we cannot have ties this round, so, of course I will play my homer card (and really, bourbon in the morning is AWESOME) and take TEAM USA!
