If you're looking for a super easy, bubbly, non-alcoholic drink to welcome in the New Year, I have the recipe! The recipe as given below will make one 8 oz. drink. I doubled the amounts and divided the drinks between four champagne flutes.
This recipe is courtesy from my friends at King's Olive Oil Company. You will be surprised to learn that one of the ingredients of this refreshing drink is vinegar! To be specific, Cranberry Pear White Balsamic Vinegar!
Cranberry Pear has a clean, crisp and very tart taste and boasts a lovely deep, rose blush. It has an amazingly fruity, complex bouquet that shines in a multitude of culinary applications. Try Cranberry Pear with our Roasted Almond Oil, Walnut Oil, Blood Orange Olive Oil or Persian Lime Olive Oil. Use to dress fruit or vegetable salads; use as a marinade or a glaze for poultry; or mix with gelatin for a delicious fruit aspic or even in a mixed drink as I did here!
8 oz. club soda
3 T. Cranberry Pear Balsamic Vinegar
Wedge of lime
Pour club soda into a glass filled with crushed ice. Add Cranberry Pear Balsamic and stir until mixed thoroughly. Squeeze lime into glass and serve.
To make four drinks as I did above, fill glasses with crushed ice. In a large measuring cup, add 16 oz. club soda, 5 - 6 T. Cranberry Pear Balsamic Vinegar, and the juice of 1/2 lime. Stir to combine and fill glasses. Serve immediately
