Changing drinking habits during the World Cup

Although the sun has long set on England’s chances of glory in Brazil - blink and you missed it - fear not, you can still enjoy the World Cup with the classic Brazilian caipirinha. Or if you are still feeling down because England are out of the running, you can wallow with a John Collins.

World cup fever has caused drinking habits to change throughout the world. With all the stress are you really suprised?

Rio, famous for caipirinha

Lager, ale & cider UK sales have increased by an extra 24 million pints, with volume up by 29% compared to the same week in 2013.

It's not just alcohol sales that go sky high during the world cup. Non stop advertising means that sales of energy drinks and branded soft drinks shoot up as well

According to Webloyalty, 94% of people watching the World Cup final will be staying at home. Thankfully, Crimson Mobile Bars understands that it can sometimes be a pain putting on your gladrags to hit the town and that sometimes, it is just not that much fun sitting in a crowded, sweaty bar only to have your view of the television blocked or even worse, the channel changed. Sometimes it just makes sense to stay at home with friends.

But just because you’re at home doesn’t mean your drinks should suffer. Yes, that’s right, we saw you making that rather hair-raising concoction last Friday night!
