From G&T To Whisky Sour, Serve These Cocktails At Your Next Pizza Party

Use These Cocktail Pairings To Make Your Next Pizza Party A Hit 

For your next pizza night with friends, let's not just throw a bunch of pizzas on the table and call it a day. 2024 is all about subtle makeovers and this time, we’re working with pizzas and cocktails. Picture this: every cheesy, saucy slice gets its own cocktail sidekick, turning every mouthful into a flavour bomb. Welcome to the pizza party reimagined – where classic cocktails are very much part of the guest list.

The Classic Margherita Meets a Crisp Gin & Tonic

Starting with the simplest but tastiest pizza out there, the Margherita pizza is sure to wow your guests with that zingy combination of tomato, creamy mozzarella, and basil. Now, what could possibly match up to this? Enter the Gin & Tonic. Mix 45 ml of Tanqueray gin topped with tonic water over ice. The gin's botanicals dance perfectly with the basil, while the tonic's quinine complements the tomato's acidity. It's like they were made for each other.

Pepperoni Pizza and a Smoky Whisky Sour

For the pepperoni aficionados, a cocktail with a bit of bite is in order. A Whisky Sour is the way to go, but let's give it a twist with Johnnie Walker Black Label, using 45 ml of whisky. The smokiness of the whisky plays off the spiciness of the pepperoni, while the sourness of the lemon juice cuts through the fat, hitting all the right notes. It's a harmony of flavours that'll have you reaching for slice after slice.

BBQ Chicken Pizza and a Rum Old Fashioned

Ah, BBQ chicken pizza – it's sweet, it's smoky, and it's unapologetically bold. It needs a drink that can stand up to its big flavours. Enter the Rum Old Fashioned. We're twisting the script and using 45 ml of Captain Morgan Dark Rum instead of bourbon. It's like drizzling your pizza with a caramel glaze. Add a few dashes of Angostura bitters, and you've got a combo that wraps you up like a warm hug on a brisk evening. This isn't just eating; it's an experience.

Vegetarian Delight and a Cucumber Vodka Spritz

For the veggie lovers, a pizza loaded with all the greens, reds, and yellows of the vegetable kingdom deserves a drink that's as fresh and light as the toppings. A Cucumber Vodka Spritz, featuring 45 ml of Smirnoff Vodka infused with cucumber and topped with soda water, is the answer. The crispness of the cucumber elevates the vegetables' natural flavours, while the vodka keeps things interesting. It's a garden party in your mouth.

Hawaiian Pizza and a Coconut Rum Punch

Lastly, for the Hawaiian pizza crowd – yes, pineapple on pizza is a hill some of us are willing to die on—a Coconut Rum Punch is the tropical getaway your pizza night needs. Mix 30 ml of Captain Morgan Coconut Rum with pineapple juice and a splash of grenadine for that sunset colour. The coconut rum enhances the pineapple's sweetness, while the rum's warmth ties beautifully with the ham's saltiness. It's a mini-vacation with every bite and sip.
