Pizzas and cocktails pretty much sum up what an ideal evening at your den looks like. Maybe with your partner, some close friends, or just by yourself. It’s the ideal combination made in heaven for foodies of the Insta generation. To make the best of this, you need to know which cocktails hit off the palette just perfectly when paired with your favorite pizzas, no matter what kind you prefer (yes, pineapples pizzas too!).
Let us introduce you to a few cocktails which are perfect to pair with the pizza of your choice. After you’ve tried these, there’ll be no looking back for sure.
Sangria With Margherita Pizza
When two classics come together, you can be assured of a full-scale party to just revolve around this combination. The explosive fruit flavor from the sangria along with the strong, overwhelming flavor which elevates the classic flavors of the good ol’ margherita is something you can’t ignore.
Cuba Libre With Pepperoni Pizza
Just the idea of having a pepperoni pizza at the end of an excruciating week of work is enough inspiration to pull through, isn’t it? In that case, the Cuba Libre is the perfect companion to go with this popular favorite. The good old coke and pizza combination gets an (adult) revamp with the Cuba Libre, making THE perfect combination.
Aperol Spritz With White Pizza
The simpler the pizza, the better it gets. If that statement is right, then the white pizza is an epitome of simplistic excellence in cooking. To pair that with an Aperol Spritz is to maintain the balance and not overpower the fresh taste of the rich ricotta on the top.
Pineapple Moscow Mule With Pulled Pork Pizza
Bring together the tropical goodness of the Pineapple Moscow Mule with the sweet and savory taste of the pulled pork pizza for an ideal merger. The ginger beer in the Moscow Mule along with the pineapple plays off perfectly with the intense flavors of the slow-cooked pulled pork.
German Pilsner With Four Cheese Pizza
If anything can give a cheese (burst) pizza a run for its money, it’s a pizza topped with four kinds of cheese. Gulp down all that gooey, piquant goodness with a simple and light German Pilsner which, with its herbal characteristics, adds just the right amount of flavor to the already-dense flavors from the pizza. After all, classic flavors are all about that perfect balance.
These five combinations are enough to get the plans of a pizza and drinks party going strong, we assume. You can also get creative and challenge the foodie in you to try more unconventional combinations. However, balance in flavors is the key, no matter what.
