If you fancy getting creative with your drinks, we've got the lowdown on the best cocktails you can enjoy from each country in Group F - Portugal, France, Germany, and Hungary.

If you fancy splashing out, the French 75 is a delicious French cocktail that combines two popular drinks - gin and champagne.

All you'll need for this drink are one tablespoon of lemon juice, one teaspoon of sugar syrup, 50ml of gin, and some champagne, ice and lemon zest.

If you aren't a natural mixologist, the French 75 couldn't be easier to make - you just need to mix the ingredients together in a cocktail shaker then fill it up with ice.

You should then strain it into a champagne flute and top with champagne as desired. Swirl gently, then top with lemon juice if desired.

German cocktail

Tschunk is a German rum-based cocktail, which can be made using either white or dark rum.

As well as the rum, you'll need brown sugar, crushed ice, lime cubes, and Club-Mate.

First, you should squash chopped lime and brown sugar into a highball glass, before adding the crushed ice, rum, and Club-Mate.

The Caipirinha is Portugal's national cocktail.

It's both simple to make and absolutely delicious - so it's just perfect for any occasion.

It is made using a drink called Cachaca, which is a liquor made in Brazil.

To make a Caipirinha, all you'll need is two limes (one halved and the other sliced into eight slices), four teaspoons of sugar, six oz of Cachaca, and shaved or crushed ice.

Hungarian cocktail

The Emperor is a cocktail made from Unicom, which is Hungary's national drink.

To make The Emperor, all you need to do is stir the Unicom with sweet vermouth, orange curaçao, and ice in a mixer.

You should then strain the drink into a chilled coupe glass, before topping it with an orange twist.
