Strawberry & Balsamic Vinegar Twist

Strawberry & Balsamic Vinegar Twist

This cocktail is not so much as a twist as a match made in heaven. If you have never tasted the divine alchemy of strawberries bathed in balsamic vinegar, then this is the best introduction to what will be a lasting love story.

2 strawberries, quartered
60ml Tanqueray Gin
15ml Italian balsamic vinegar
15ml brown sugar syrup
¼ tsp egg white
Pinch of fresh thyme

Muddle the strawberries, gin and thyme until the mixture resembles a puree.
Add the balsamic vinegar, sugar syrup and egg white. The egg white gives the cocktail a textured, creamier finish.
Shake well and double strain into a cocktail glass.
