The Cocktail Olympics
Turn images on to get the full picture.Let’s be honest: Not a lot of work will be done during the next 17 days as the world watches the Olympics in London. People’s minds will be focused on their favorite athletes and busy tabulating medal counts.

While we too care about such matters, we’ll primarily be sweating over the important question of what to drink with each sport. It’s not an inconsequential consideration, given that the coverage will be pretty much inescapable.

So we dug deep into our recipe library to find some appropriately sporting concoctions, which naturally call for a range of international spirits. Let the games begin!

We don’t suggest drinking and tumbling, but a classic Flip—like the rich Gaelic Flip or the fortifying Cruzan Flip—is the perfect accompaniment to the endless rounds of individual and team exercises. We toast you, Márta Károlyi!

Perhaps we shouldn’t believe the hype, but if Kobe Bryant is right that this squad is even better than the Dream Team, you’ll need to fix a few bubbly creations. We’ll be enjoying theFrench 75 and the Kir Royale.

Swimming & Diving:
Something about the sound of splashing water makes us thirsty for a tropical elixir. Try a Smuggler’s Cove Straits Slingor a Beach Bum, which we think pairs beautifully with Rowdy Gaines’ play-by-play.
