BB&R

Basil, Balsamic, and Rye. See that? Balsamic Vinegar isn't just for salads anymore.


Use the best balsamic vinegar you can find, although it doesn't have to be the rare and very expensive aged balsamic. Make the syrup the day before you want to serve this cocktail and keep it refrigerated until ready to use.

2 oz Liberty Pole Rye Whiskey

1 oz Balsamic and Basil Syrup*

1-1/2 oz ginger beer

1 cup water

1 cup balsamic vinegar

1-1/2 cup sugar

Drop a handful of basil into the warm syrup.
