There comes a time in life where every good pantry should have ingredients stocked for the basics of life. Chicken soup, stir-fry and a good old-fashioned cocktail.
Old-fashioned cocktails are one of those drinks that pleases just about anyone with its perfect mixture of sweet and sour. Traditionally made by dropping cocktail bitters on a sugar cube, this recipe adds a delightful Italian touch. Instead of cocktail bitters, substitute with balsamic vinegar to add a richer depth to the drink. This recipe makes one drink. I recommend you double it and kick back and enjoy it with a loved one.
