Amerian John Isner’s win over Frenchman Nicolas Mahut wasn’t easy, and that’s putting it lightly. Three days after the match started, Isner finally beat Mahut in the longest tennis match in history. 167 games without either player breaking serve and over 200 collective aces later, the fifth set ended 70-68 in the American’s favor. Needless to say, both players deserve a drink. This Wimbledon Cocktail might just do the trick.

Landon Donovan’s last minute goal against Algeria on Wednesday had Americans everywhere yelling “GOALLLLLLLLL,” and rightfully so. With the win, the U.S. World Cup team places first in their group and advances to the round of 16. Without the win, the Americans’ time in South Africa would have come to an end. In celebration of the win, and for luck in the next match against Ghana, we recommend this U.S. Soccer-inspired drink.

Not a sports fanatic? No problem.
