Check out our curated list of food and cocktail duos, just in time for your holiday celebrations!

1. Margherita Pizza & Spiced Sangria

The zesty, sweet flavors of a Spiced Sangria are a great pair to the classic taste of Oggi’s gluten-free margherita pizza. The fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella, and basil create a perfect balance with the fruity notes of the sangria.

  2. Before serving, add the soda water and serve over ice with slices of fruit.

2. Pasta Salad & Cranberry Spritzer

A Cranberry Spritzer brings a bright acidity alongside any pasta salad, especially one made with Oggi’s gluten-free four cheese tortellini. The combination of a tangy dressing and tart cranberry juice never fails to impress.

Cranberry Spritzer Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sparkling water
  • 1/4 cup lime juice

3. Salumi Flatbread & Pomegranate Mule

Dress up Oggi’s gluten-free pizza crust with your favorite salumi, cheese, and pickled veggies to make the perfect flatbread – then bring in the Pomegranate Mule. This seasonal cocktail offers a refreshing kick alongside the flatbread’s savory toppings.

Pomegranate Mule Ingredients:

  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1 oz pomegranate juice
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • Ginger beer
  • Pomegranate seeds and lime wedge for garnish

4. Crust Chips with Dip & Maple Bourbon Old Fashioned

Turn Oggi’s pizza crust into crispy chips, and you’ve got the perfect match for the smoky sweetness of a Maple Bourbon Old Fashioned.  Just cut the crust into small triangles, bake until crispy, and serve them with your favorite dip, like salsa, guacamole, or spinach-artichoke.

Maple Bourbon Old Fashioned Ingredients:

  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 1/2 oz maple syrup
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • Orange twist for garnish

Instructions:

  1. In a mixing glass, combine bourbon, maple syrup, and bitters.
  2. Add ice and stir until well-chilled.
  3. Strain into a glass over ice. Garnish with an orange twist.

5. Brown Butter Ravioli & Sparkling Pear Martini
