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 Ice
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.
