Natural Spring Water , Sparkling Water & Cocktails- Add 1-2 tbsp of Lemon Balsamic, Strawberry Peach, Cranberry Orange, Grapefruit, Cucumber Melon. I really enjoy using the flavoured white balsamic’s in my water and cocktails.
Over Fresh Fruit- This is an amazing way to bring out those natural flavours and get creative with your fruit. My favourites are Strawberry Balsamic, Raspberry Balsamic, Cucumber Melon and Apricot
Yogurt- This is so delicious and a great way to start your day! My favourite is Blackberry Balsamic, Blueberry Balsamic and Coconut (even try mixing this with another fruity balsamic to take the taste to another level).
Over Cheese- This is truly such a great entertaining and appetizer for unexpected guests. I use some of my favourite Gouda and imported cheeses, cut into cubes and drizzle 25 star dark balsamic vinegar and this is sure to be enjoyed as well as addictive.
Grilled Flat Bread- I love eating and creating different variations of flat breads but there is always one ingredient that stays the same and that is the finishing balsamic vinegar I drizzle over top when I am about to enjoy it or serve to my friends and family. My favorite is Fig Balsamic, 25 star Dark, Hickory Balsamic, Garlic Cilantro Balsamic and Garlic Balsamic.
Salads- Now you can eat salad everyday without getting bored just by changing the flavour of vinegar you pair with your olive oil. I usually do 2 parts olive oil to 1 part vinegar. My all time fav’s are Cranberry Pear Balsamic with Garlic Olive Oil, Strawberry Balsamic with Basil Olive Oil, Bordeaux Cherry Balsamic with Meyer Lemon Olive Oil and Peach Balsamic with Persian Lime Olive Oil.
Marinate your Meat- I always love to BBQ steak, chicken, tenderloins, fish, ribs and burgers when the nice weather hits and throughout the year. When you marinate your meat, the acids soften tough muscle at the same time that they give meat more flavour. Tenderize with smokey, savory or fruity Balsamic to enhance the flavour of your meat and I promise, you will not be disappointed. My favourites are Hickory Balsamic, Lambrusco Vinegar, Fig Balsamic, Garlic Balsamic, Lemongrass Mint Balsamic and Coconut Balsamic (so good on fish and shellfish).
