Patrón

The pizza features layers of bold flavors infused with premium tequila.

In honor of National Margarita Day on Feb. 22, Patrón has released its latest creation: a “margarita” Margherita pizza.

The creation, officially called the Platinum “Margarita” Margherita Pizza, is infused with Gran Patrón Platinum and Burdeos tequilas (which go for $200 and $500 a bottle, respectively), but the luxury doesn’t stop there. The pizza is made with layers of glazed lobster and mango, Osetra caviar, black truffles, and avocado.

The dish was created by Michael Armstrong, chef at Bodega Negra, a Mexican eatery in New York City’s Dream Downtown Hotel.

“We’ve carried Patrón’s Gran line for years and love the flavor of each expression, so [we] wanted to use it to blend the flavors in this dish for something truly special,” Armstrong said in a statement to The Daily Meal.

“Our main focus here was to highlight the Gran Patrón and have it compliment the other ingredients. Lobster, mango, and avocado are a great combination — we wanted to allow those flavors to make sense with each other and with the Patrón.”
