THIS National Margarita Day, there’s a new pizza that you actually need ID to prove you’re over 18 to buy… Introducing the Margarita Margherita: an alcohol-infused pizza that combines the ingredients of the classic Margherita pizza with those of a Margarita cocktail.
From dough to sauce, the alcohol-infused delicacy includes a unique fusion of food and drink from tequila brand, Jose Cuervo.
The world’s oldest tequila, Jose Cuervo, teamed up with leading food economists to develop the unprecedented taste sensation that is the Margarita Margherita pizza. With lockdown seeing millions turn to takeaways and deliveries, Jose Cuervo hopes its Margarita Margherita will become the ‘pizza de resistance’ of lockdown meals for fans of bread, cheese, tomato and Mexican cocktails.
The Margarita Margherita pizza recipe includes:
- A pizza dough fermented in Jose Cuervo tequila for over 24-hours
- A tomato sauce marinated in triple sec, salt, garlic and Jose Cuervo tequila
- A topping of Buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil leaves and grated parmesan
- A garnish of sea salt and fresh lime
Jose Cuervo has joined forces with Crazy Pedro’s to freshly make and deliver the Margarita Margherita pizza to homes across Liverpool on National Margarita Day (February 22nd). Pre-orders can be taken here: https://jose-cuervo-margarita-margherita.myshopify.com/
What’s more, every purchase of the £8 pizza will come with a complimentary special edition pizza-inspired Margarita cocktail that combines the traditional sweet and savoury flavours of a traditional Margarita with toppings found in a traditional Margherita pizza. It contains fresh lemon juice, basil, fresh tomatoes and tequila and finished off with a garnish of cherry tomatoes and a mozzarella ball on a skewer with basil leaves.
