If you have spent much time on our recipe blog, you will note that we like to promote balsamic vinegar as components of cocktails. They add complexity, richness, and vinegar (like the now popular 'shrubs') add acidity, or brightness to a drink. This simple cocktail is a little sour, a little sweet, complex but refreshing, and can be wonderful at a holiday party or on a hot summer day.
We are not being trivial, below, where we recommend this as a wonderful non-alcoholic adult beverage. It is more sophisticated than you might expect.
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2 mint sprigs
- 2 tablespoons Pastamore Lemongrass White Balsamic Vinegar
- dry sparkling wine, such as a Brut (or club soda for a non-alcoholic version)
- lemon slice as garnish
