Mixology is a hot culinary topic these days, and finding unique ingredients for cocktails is all the rage.
You may have heard the term "shrub". These are sweetened vinegar-based syrups, from which the cocktail is made, also known as drinking vinegar. Drinking vinegar is often infused with fruit juice, herbs and spices for use in mixed drinks. Our balsamic vinegar fits the bill perfectly.
The recipe that follows uses our Lemongrass with White Balsamic Vinegar. Lemongrass has a citrusy aroma, with undertones of ginger and mint, which obviously lends itself well to a mojito. This is a relatively easy recipe with stunningly complex & refreshing flavors.
Oh! Fair warning: We found these to be a little TOO easy to consume... if you know what we mean...
- 6 large fresh mint leaves
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon Pastamore’ Lemongrass with White Balsamic Vinegar
- 6 tablespoons white rum
- 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- ice cubes
- 1 cup chilled club soda
Makes two drinks.
