This week, the World Cup kicked off without the US Men’s National Team – which means North America’s true team, El Tri, has extra support and fandom behind them. After all, Mexico’s national team has already basically made the US their second home; some of its biggest stars play in the MLS, they sell more tickets here than team USA, they have a large fan base with nearly 40 million Mexicans living in the country, and they’ve played more than half of their international matches here since 2007.

If you’re rooting for El Tri this year – and here’s a list of 10 reasons why you should – we’ve got the perfect refreshing brunch cocktail to sip as you put on la verde to catch those early morning games: a michelada verde. Watch the video below to learn how to make it!
