The Italian Santa


The warm flavors of Bistro Blends balsamic of Modena blend perfectly into holiday cocktails, bringing depth and nuance to the flavors of the season.

Per cocktail:

  • 1 1/2 oz. vodka
  • 3/4 oz. spiced pear purée (or pear nectar with a sprinkle of cinnamon)
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/4 oz. blood orange juice
  • 1 ½ teaspoons (1/4 oz.) Heirloom Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon whisked egg white (or 1 teaspoon powdered egg whites)
  • 1 piece star anise (garnish)
Shake ingredients together without ice for a few seconds to blend well. Add ice and shake vigorously for 10 seconds more. Strain into a wine glass and float a piece of star anise on top.
