We think there’s no better way to celebrate Spring than with a cocktail that exhibits one of the season’s greatest fruits: strawberries. But a strawberry daiquiri this is not; this cocktail, appropriately dubbed the strawberry-balsamic crush, combines sweet, tart, and savory flavors thanks to the combination of fresh berries, aged balsamic vinegar, and freshly ground black pepper. From 101 Mojitos and Other Muddled Drinks by Kim Haasarud and Alexandra Grablewski Strawberry-Balsamic Crush Ingredients2 ripe strawberries, hulled, plus 1 for garnish 1 teaspoon aged balsamic vinegar 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice 1 ounce simple syrup 1 1/2 ounces vodka Black pepper, freshly ground Directions In a mixing glass, muddle 2 of the strawberries with the vinegar, lime juice, and simple syrup. Add the vodka, and top with ice. Shake vigorously. Either strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice or into a chilled martini glass. Top with a twist of freshly ground black pepper. Garnish with the remaining strawberry. Information Category Cocktails, Drinks Cuisine North American Yield 1 cocktail print recipe
