Pineapples & Pizza at Matador Bar – A Groovin’ Foodie Affair
Hello to my hedonists and shedonists! As you may recall, a few weeks back we promoted this super fun cocktail hour called Pineapples & Pizza. The concept is based on a monthly mixer held in the opulent Matador Bar located in the Miami Beach Edition hotel, where the talented chefs create a one-off pizza recipe that pairs perfectly with their signature pineapple concoction. We had a great time and highly recommend you attend the next month’s gathering! Last month’s pizza featured was a to-die-for fresh ricotta and broccoli rabe pie topped with chorizo. I have to say, I’ve eaten quite a few pizzas in this lifetime and this one was my favorite! It had a zingy citrus zest to it that paired incredibly well with the ricotta and broccoli flavors. The chorizo topping was far better then traditional pepperoni– it had true flavor to it and added that meaty savoryness that pulled everything together into a delightful cheesy smorgasbord for the taste buds!
And let’s not forget about the Pineapple drink! Created with Absolute Elyx, it was refreshing and just sweet enough to balance out the salty pizza flavors. The crushed ice and ornate copper pineapple mug kept the drinks chilly and smooth.
Whilst munching the fluffy scrumptious pizza and sipping our delectable cocktails, our ears were treated to dessert by the band J.M. and The Sweets! These guys were fabulous, playing funky and fun tunes that added to the swanky and vibrant ambiance.
Overall, it was a fantastic evening and I am looking forward to going back! For just $35 you get this winning pizza and cocktail combination, and memories for a lifetime!
