I don't know about you but I often think, "you know what my tomato sauce needs? Vodka". Thankfully Heinz have answered my prayers by creating Tomato Vodka Pasta Sauce. This isn't a hoax.
Heinz to Home's website states: "Pasta alla Vodka had one of its biggest moments in history in 2020, when a certain supermodel and influencer created a viral sensation with their social media recipe for spicy vodka pasta, becoming one of the trendiest recipes on TikTok and Instagram.
"Now, one of the most iconic tomato sauce brands, Heinz, and one of the most iconic premium vodka brands, Absolut Vodka, are bringing their own version of the much-loved recipe to the masses, in jar-form, through the creation of Heinz x Absolut Tomato Vodka Pasta Sauce."
Don't worry about being over the drink drive limit after your tea though, the website explains that the alcohol content is very low, "The vodka boosts the flavour of the tomatoes, creating a rich texture that perfectly balances the creamy, cheese notes with the rich tomato and fragrant basil.
"During the cooking process, most of the alcohol from the vodka is reduced, boosting the volatile flavour compounds already present in the tomatoes and creating a rich texture that perfectly balances the creamy, cheese notes with the rich tomato and fragrant basil."
The pasta sauce came in 350g jars at the cost of a pretty affordable £2.50 but it's now sold out everywhere which is a shame. Keep your eyes peeled for it though...
