Buzzfeed describes the pizza cocktail as a combination of:
Tomato water, basil-infused vodka and porcini powder… topped with a Parmesan and mozzarella foam.
Cheese foam. CHEESE FOAM. I never thought I’d have anything remotely negative to say about cheese, so it breaks my heart to have to ask, what kind of monster would ever want to drink cheese? What’s worse is that although this pizza cocktail sounds like the worst thing that’s ever happened, it is merely a symptom of a greater problem: food hybridization.
Just when people started easing up on the seemingly religious need infuse everything with bacon, others began splicing and combining hybrid abominations with unrelenting fervor. The logic is sound. It seems like everything popular today is a crossover or hybrid of two things that used to be popular (see: cronuts, mashups). This new pizza cocktail took the food hybridization trend from tedious to shark-jumping.
We don’t have to combine all the things we like. Let’s enjoy pizza and cocktails without turning one into the other. They were fine before, weren’t they? Can we please take a break? These twisted mixologists think they’re alchemists, but they are more like Dr. Frankenstein or the guy from The Fly. Leave pizza out of your sick game.
