More than 160 of the top social sports competitors from across the U.S. converged in Las Vegas. They were there to play in a two-day social sports extravaganza competing for the title of World Champion and a $10,000 grand prize, and team Chicago walking away with the prize. The weekend was hosted by actor Scott Eastwood. Check out the highlights on the following pages.
Eastwood demonstrated his mixology chops by creating the event’s signature American Honey Cocktail, The Honey Gobbler. Here’s the recipe. 1.5 oz American Honey Dash of bitters Muddled mint leaves Ginger beer Combine all ingredients except for ginger beer in a shaker. Shake hard and strain over fresh ice in a rocks glass. Top with ginger beer.
“As owner of the Saddle Bar in Solano Beach, California, I always appreciate bringing people together for a good time and a great drink," says Eastwood. "To help the competitors unwind after a long day on the playing field, I created The Honey Gobbler – a twist on the julep and a nod to American Honey’s legendary Kentucky roots.”
“I also got to jump into the action refereeing the first-ever bubble soccer exhibition match."
“Think sumo wrestling mixed with World Cup soccer."
"But at the end of the day, this was all about the players. Congrats to Team Chicago on a most deserving win.”
