"Rooney's Overhead named after English forward Wayne Rooney incorporates London dry gin while The Maracana - Brazil's famed stadium at Rio de Janeiro - blends in the South American nation's popular spirit Cachaca with lime and orange juice."
Kolkata, July 4 - With midnight FIFA World Cup matches whetting one's enthusiasm as well as appetite, special late-night food delivery service and themed food and drinks have added to the soccer mania in this eastern metropolis.

It's not just the ace footballers who have upped the ante for the win. Leading restaurants and hotels have revved up their offerings in sync with the mood here and time is no barrier.

For example, the Buzz diner at the Gateway Hotel here has started a home delivery service that runs till 3 a.m., perfect for wolfing down some exclusive club sandwiches or fudge brownies after an adrenaline-pumping match.

Similarly, sink your teeth into pizzas that have Latin American flavours at the Hub in Taj Bengal.

Take your pick from the asparagus-based Peruvian pizza, or the roasted pineapple one from Brazil. Argentinian fans can go for the Chimichuri sauce laced offering while seafood toppings will lure Mexico loyals.

To quench your thirst, try any of the 32 cocktails at The Junction symbolic of the participating nations.
