An interesting mix of strawberries and balsamic vinegar!
One of the best things about spring is the first crop of strawberries that hits the stores, when the berries are plump and juicy and super sweet. One of our favorite combinations is combining balsamic vinegar with strawberries into a sweet and sour syrup that can be used on ice cream, shortcake or on waffles. We recently made a batch to go on a bunch of waffles we made for dinner (because sometimes you just want brinner!) and we had a bunch of the syrup left over.
We were looking for a night cap, so we decided to experiment with the extra syrup and came up with this cocktail. Strawberries and bourbon typically pair well, but we wanted something with a bit more bite so we used Bulleit Rye as our base spirit which ended up being really nice in this easy whiskey drink.
