We love to keep a pitcher of balsamic-infused water on the counter…. with a splash of peach, strawberry, or grapefruit that gives water a “wow!”

Light white balsamics are a great addition to water or iced tea, and make refreshing summer cocktails too.  A few ideas here… but use your own imagination. Add a cucumber… mint… or fruit to garnish!

Summer Strawberry Refresher 

  • 1/2 oz. Strawberry Balsamic
  • 1 1/2 ox. Gin
  • 2 strawberries
  • 1/2 oz. Agave
  • Club Soda

In a tall glass: muddle two strawberries. Add the gin, and stir in agave. Add desired amount of ice and top with club soda. Stir together…. and enjoy.

Peach Balsamic Wine Cooler

  • 1 oz. Peach White Balsamic
  • 1 oz. Vodka
  • 3 mint leaves
  • Prosecco

Combine all ingredients in tall glass, pouring the Prosecco last to top off. Leave room for ice to make this wine cooler extra cool!  Bonus points – add a watermelon wedge!

Jalapeno Balsamic Margarita

  • Jose Cuervo Tequila Silver
  • Triple Sec
  • Fresh lime juice & wedge
  • Jalapeno Olive Oil

Pour 1 tsp of Jalapeno Olive Oil into highball glass.  Fill 3/4th with ice.  In cocktail shaker add 2oz. of Jose Cuervo Tequila Silver, 1 oz. of Triple Sec, and 1 oz. of lime juice.  Shake for 10-15 seconds and pour over ice.  Serve with straw – important for stirring in oil as drinking – don’t forget the lime!

Balsamic Lemon and and Vodka Cocktail

  • 10 lemons, juiced, approx 1 cup of lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup super fine sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • 1-2 tsp. Balsamic Vinegar (try peach, strawberry or raspberry – start with 1 tsp… test it… add more if desired)
  • 1 cup vodka (optional)

Combine the lemon juice, sugar and water in a large pitcher and mix to combine.  Add the balsamic to taste. Adjust if needed… add vodka, stir and enjoy.
