Why did we named it 'Moscato' ?
Moscato is a sweet italian wine. It has a light 'fruity' flavor which makes it popular choice for pairing with cheeses as well as fruits, pies, cakes and most snacks.
It was brought to Argentina by the italian immigrants from 1870 until 1950 and it became the most popular drink among workers at lunch time. And, of course, it became popular in the "milongas" of Buenos Aires.
Portenos commonly ordered a 'combo' of moscato, pizza and faina, and indulged themselves in this ritual since the old times. It is a tradition in Buenos Aires, it just feel like the right thing to do where sitting in a pizzeria on Corrientes Avenue.
Surprisingly there is a famous song about "Moscato, pizza and faina" that goes:
"Las luces se encienden
la calle Corrientes
se llena de gente
que viene y que va
salen del cine
rien y lloran
se aman, se pelean
se vuelven a amar
En la Universal
fin de la noche
moscato, pizza y faina
moscato y pizza..."
