Drink of the Weekend – Bufala Negra











- Bufala Negra -


Bourbon and basil meet in this tart and tangy cocktail combining balsamic syrup and ginger beer.


At The Oakroom, where Al Capone regularly played poker in the 1920s, the bartenders use bourbon from Buffalo Trace Distillery in nearby Frankfort, Kentucky.






4 basil leaves
1 teaspoon aged balsamic vinegar
1/2 ounce Simple Syrup
1 1/2 ounces bourbon
1 1/2 ounces chilled ginger ale



In a cocktail shaker, muddle 3 of the basil leaves with the vinegar and Simple Syrup. Add ice and the bourbon and shake well. Strain the drink into an ice-filled rocks glass, stir in the ginger ale and garnish with the remaining basil leaf.

To Make Balsamic Syrup: Combine 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup of simple syrup (1:1) in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring just to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let cool.
