If you’ve ever wondered how to re-hydrate dried out cherries, look no further. The Boston-based restaurant Salvatore’s has offered a genius solution: Soak them in vodka. Betcha didn’t think of that one.
The restaurant’s alcoholic pizza is infused with enough vodka to warrant ID checks for 21+ patrons. As corporate chef Victor Paone told the Boston Herald: “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.” Sheer genius.
Along with the vodka-soaked cherries, the pizza comes with sliced prosciutto, Gorgonzola, orange blossom honey and fresh mozzarella. The adult-only pie has also sparked a liquor-friendly trend at the establishment; in mid-October two more 21-plus pizzas will be added to the menu. Keep an eye out for the “Drunken Pig,” braised pork marinated in Kahlua with caramelized Granny Smith apples, spicy hot honey and ricotta cheese, and the “Calabria Peach,” rum-infused peaches with soppressata picante, mascarpone, basil and more fresh mozzarella.
I wonder if they deliver to California? Hmm…
