Boston-based restaurant Salvatore’s is now offering a vodka-soaked pizza that requires an ID check before an order can be placed. How did this all come about?
“We got some dried Italian cherries, and we cooked them, and they were too tough…Obviously, we had to soak them a little, so I decided to soak them in raspberry vodka.”
In addition to the cherries, the pizza offers sliced prosciutto, Gorgonzola, orange blossom honey and fresh mozzarella. Apparently the move was successful, because the establishment will debut two additional offerings this month: the “Drunken Pig,” which consists of braised pork marinated in Kahlua with caramelized Granny Smith apples, spicy hot honey and ricotta cheese, and the “Calabria Peach,” which has rum-infused peaches with soppressata picante, mascarpone, basil and more fresh mozzarella.
