Strawberry Balsamic Cocktail Video

A Sweet and Sour Strawberry Stunner

We think there's no better way to celebrate Spring than with a cocktail that exhibits one of the season's greatest fruits: strawberries. But a strawberry daiquiri this is not; this cocktail, appropriately dubbed the strawberry-balsamic crush, combines sweet, tart, and savory flavors thanks to the combination of fresh berries, aged balsamic vinegar, and freshly ground black pepper.
