Atlanta United Player Cocktails - Hector "Tito" Villalba

If you're going to be a fan, you'll eventually need a drink. Have some signature Atlanta United Player Cocktails.

Hector "Tito" Villalba needs a welcome drink. 

Considering Villalba goes by Tito, it leaves a lot of vodka-based cocktails as an option. But that sounds too boring for such an exciting young prospect. 

Argentinean beer such as Cervaza Quilmes hasn't quite endeared itself to Americans yet either. Much less is it easy to come across in a store.

Let's help Tito assimilate into Atlanta life as easy as possible. 

The people of Buenos Aires, home to Tito's childhood club San Lorenzo, love Fernet Branca, the bitter, herbal Italian liquor. 

Argentina as a whole also consumes massive amounts of Coca-Cola. 

Mixing Coke and Fernet Branca over ice into a bittersweet concoction makes an obvious and popular beverage choice in the southern hemisphere. It also gives you a kick of flavor while going down easy. 

Sure a pisco sour or caipirinha may seem more South American and make it onto more bar menus, but a chilled Fernecola sounds like a proper drink for the Atlanta United DP. 

Bonus points if you assemble your Fernecola in a glass Coke bottle a la Victory Sandwich Bar.
