Balsamic Strawberry Bourbon Cocktail



Balsamic Strawberry Bourbon Cocktail

I've got another tasty cocktail today that features strawberries and a hint of balsamic vinegar to add a bit of a savoury flavour. The strawberries are muddled with lemon peel to form a juicy but flavourful simple syrup.

Make sure that you use a high-quality bourbon for this cocktail such as the Single Barrel Bourbon from Four Roses. This bourbon is accompanied by fruity notes with a smooth, long finish. (I sound like a real bourbon connoisseur, don't I?)

Make sure that you use high-quality strawberries for this cocktail, to ensure the best flavour. You’ll want them to be as fresh as possible to bring out the sweetness in the simple syrup tadalafil cost. I also suggest a small strawberry on the rim of the glass to complete the drink. Enjoy!


Balsamic Strawberry Bourbon Cocktail

Serves: 1 cocktail
  • For the strawberry syrup:
  • 2 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 13 cup sugar
  • 3-inch piece of lemon peel
  • For the cocktail:
  • 4 strawberries, hulled
  • 1 round slice of lemon, cut in half
  • 1 ounce strawberry syrup
  • 12 ounce balsamic vinegar
  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • Garnish: additional strawberry
  1. To make the syrup, combine the strawberries, sugar, and lemon rind in a saucepan. Cover and let sit for 1 hour at room temperature, stirring occasionally.
  2. Once the sugar has dissolved and the strawberries have released their liquid, bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat. Cook, stirring gently, until the berries are tender, about 3 minutes.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked strawberries to a pint jar. Continue simmering the syrup until it thickens to a syrupy consistency, about 2 minutes. Discard lemon peel and pour syrup over berries. Let cool to room temperature, then store in the fridge for up to 1 month.
  4. To make the cocktail: muddle 4 fresh strawberries and the lemon in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Fill the shaker with ice, then add the strawberry syrup, balsamic and bourbon.
  5. Shake vigorously until well chilled, about 15 seconds. Using both the cocktail strainer and a fine mesh strainer, strain the cocktail into a glass. Garnish with a strawberry.
