The Zingerman's Balsamic Video Contest! A Parody of the movie Julie & Julia: The ingredient of the day is Balsamic Vinegar. Our two fearless chefs take on Strawberry Balsamic Martinis. Starring: Marken Greenwood as Julia Child and Anne Markt as Julie Powell. ***We're trying to win a trip to Italy-so help us out!***

Really, this drink is divine. Here's the recipe:

1 Martini Glass
1 Martini Shaker
1 3/4 oz. Vodka
3 Fresh Strawberries, Hulled (Take the tops off, folks!)
A Squeeze of Lime Juice
1 oz. Simple Syrup (Store Bought or Homemade*)
1 Tbsp Zingerman's Balsamic Vinegar

1. Chill the vodka and glass in freezer for 1 hour.
2. Muddle the strawberries with the balsamic vinegar, simple syrup, and lime juice. This can be done traditionally in the shaker with a tool called a 'muddler'. Or you can put everything in a seal plastic bag and smash the strawberries with the bottom of a thick water glass. Transfer to shaker.
3. Add the vodka and ice.
4. Shake vigorously and strain into chilled glass.
5. Add half a strawberry to the rim of the glass as a garnish.

*Recipe for Simple Syrup
1 Part Hot Water
1 Part Sugar
Mix together until sugar has dissolved and water is relatively clear.
