When the 2012 Summer Olympics kick off in London on July 27, athletes from around the globe will prepare to hoist javelins, sink into tuck positions, and square off in fighting stances — all with the common goal of raising their arms in triumph and wrapping medals around their necks. It’s a noble goal, one that’s steeped in tradition and drenched in blood, sweat, and tears. But across the pond in Boston, the only liquids we plan to spill are cocktails, sloshed as we take in the games from a bar’s big-screen TV. So where should we go to get in the intoxicating spirit of the Olympics? STUFF scoured sports history books, culled enough athletics-related trivia to fill a season of Jeopardy, and curated a list of cocktails that seem like appropriate alcoholic companions for half a dozen of the summer’s featured competitions. So sit back, tip back, and let the games begin.
