Pizza Cocktail At Trattoria Neapolis Might Actually Be Awesome (PHOTOS)

Tomato water, basil-infused vodka, porcini powder ... need we go on?

You can eat your pizza and drink it, too, at Trattoria Neapolis, an Italian bistro in Pasadena, Calif. The restaurant recently unveiled a pizza-inspired cocktail that isn't messing around.

The libation is made with tomato water, basil-infused vodka, ghost-pepper infused vodka, porcini powder, muddled basil and topped with a Parmesan and mozzarella foam.

It all sounds rather strange, but then again, so are Bloody Mary cocktails these days. With that in mind, we think there's a decent chance this pizza cocktail actually tastes good.

But does it really taste like pizza? According to L.A. Weekly's food blog, Squid Ink, it's a "scarily accurate drink that tastes as if your slice jumped into a Vitamix with a bottle of vodka." Lovely.
