I really do not like the taste of balsamic vinegar (people wonder if I'm really Italian), but after taking another cooking class with Fabio Viviani, I ordered a Balsamic Martini... once I bravely took a small sip of my Aunt's. And it was the most incomparable sweet but tangy martini I've had in... well, forever! This drink was made by the best dang "mixologist" I know, Jacopo Falleni, the handsome and charming business partner of Fabio. After the class, I just had to praise him for getting me to eat things that I normally despise! And he tells me, "Well, if you can't eat it, drink it!" And he was right... a perfect combo of Vanilla Rum, Simple Syrup, Strawberry Puree, Limes, Balsamic Vinegar and Balsamic Glaze.
