Secrets of the Artisanal Cocktail: 1 Part Balsamic Vinegar

Posted on


Preparing the latest and greatest in craft cocktails can be a point of great pride for us designated cocktail makers, if they come out right… Let us let you in on a little secret that will elevate any of your classic cocktail recipes, Balsamic Vinegar!


While you may be used to seeing it on your salad or for dipping bread, this delicious barrel aged vinegar adds a unique sweet and tart element to your drinks. Making a good drink requires one to have a certain finesse, or a really good recipe. The important thing is to have balance. Too sugary a drink will give you an awful headache, yet without the sugar you might find people can’t even get through one sip. The magic of adding Balsamic Vinegar is that the sweetness and slight acidity both balance and elevate the taste. Once you try them we’re sure you’ll be keeping a bottle of Balsamic on your wet bar.

At Brava Gourmet we import some exceptional Italian Balsamic Vinegars from Modena, Italy. Between BG’s Balsamic Dolce Vinegar, Pomegranate Balsamic Dolce, and the distinctive Peach White Balsamic Vinegar you’ll have a flavor profile to match any cocktail recipe.
