For those of you familiar with Dr. Oz (popular TV advice doctor on 'Oprah'), he recommends all adults consume up to two tablespoons of balsamic vinegar with meals whenever possible. He claims the acetic acid found in balsamic vinegar helps activate genes that burn fat and increases satiety, so you feel fuller.
With that in mind, we had a fabulous suggestion from a fan in Napa. She suggested we mix our Raspberry Balsamic in a glass with sparkling water. A perfect way to add balsamic to our diet! We tried it, loved it, and posted that recipe here. So what about using one of our new products instead? Here is the result:
- 1 to 2 tablespoons Pastamoré Dark Chocolate Balsamic
- sparkling water or club soda
- sprig of mint for garnish
In a tall cocktail glass, fill half way with ice. Add the dark chocolate balsamic, and fill with sparkling water/club soda. Add mint and/or alcohol (light rum or gin) if desired.
It may sound unusual, but give it a try. We think you will be most impressed! If you want to learn more about Dr. Oz's balsamic health benefits, click here.
