Tax Day Cocktails


Tomorrow is Tax Day, and I think that calls for a drink.  Whether you have filed for an extension, or already have parted with your hard earned cash, this cocktail is guaranteed to ease the sting.  Don’t be alarmed at the inclusion of Balsamic in the drink;  it is delicious!  The recipe features Marisolio’s Strawberry Balsamic Condimento, which if you haven’t tried….well you should!

Strawberry Balsamic Cocktail

2 ripe strawberries, hulled, plus 1 for garnish
1 teaspoon aged Marisolio Strawberry Balsamic vinegar
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice

Freshly ground black pepper

  1. In a mixing glass, muddle 2 of the strawberries with the balsamic, lime juice, and simple syrup.
  2. Add the vodka and top with ice. Shake vigorously.
  3. Either strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice or into a chilled martini glass.
