Mozzarella on that cocktail?

Filed under: margarita/margherita,word choice — substuff @ 3:57 pm

Ah, how often I read of margarita pizzas. Now, I like dough. And I have big love for tomato and mozzarella. And I’m even partial to a little tequila and Cointreau set off with freshly squeezed lime. But I can’t help but think they’d make an awfully soggy mess combined.

Better that, though, than posing in a swanky bar in your best dress, sipping on a margherita all sexy like, cheese stringing resplendently between your lips and the glass.

So, just to spell it right out…

A margarita is a refreshing cocktail made with* tequila, Cointreau and lime juice.

A margherita is a tomato, mozzarella and basil pizza (named after the Italian queen Margherita of Savoy, don’t you know).

Thinking about it, I’d quite enjoy a margherita accompanied by a margarita. Right now. Preferably served by a lady called Margaret.

* Made with? Made of? Made from? Watch this space…
