If wine goes well with everything, then why shouldn’t you look for wineries that include everything with their wine? That’s an interesting question, and a good one to consider when voyaging around wine country. Fortunately in California this is more of a philosophical question than a real one, as so many places allow you to pair great food and great wine in the same visit.
For the 51st Super Bowl, Vero Cafe in Manhattan created the world’s only 100 Proof Pizza. The pizza was made using 100 proof Georgi Blue Vodka (Blue is the official color of the New England Patriots.)
For those Atlanta Falcons fans, Vero Cafe also baked pizzas with Georgi Peach Vodka (Georgia is the Peach State.)
“People are looking to drink and eat during the Super Bowl, so why not combine the two,” said restaurant owner and pizza pie mastermind Sammy Musovic. “It’s a beautiful marriage.”
Unfortunately (or fortunately), these alcohol-infuzed pizzas were only available on Super Bowl Sunday… at least for now.
Hot beverages that wake you up or soothe you down are easy to come by if they are alcoholic or have caffeine, but those that do it naturally are growing in popularity.
