Balsamic? Isn’t that salad dressing?


An LA drinker sent us this picture of a balsamic strawberry martini and a cucumber martini from Firenze Osteria.  We’ve had cucumber martinis and actually find them quite refreshing. But balsamic?


A recent article from tells us that the Clover Club in Brooklyn is serving a similar concoction, the Strawberry Blonde: muddled strawberry, black pepper, white rum, lemon juice, simple syrup, egg white, grenadine and balsamic vinegar.


We can’t knock it until we try it, so we’ll give it a shot. Right after our Ranch Martini.
