Using vinegar in cocktails opens up a whole world of possibilities! 

Balsamic vinegar adds a cool and amazingly refreshing aspect to a cocktail.  Vinegars work best alongside citrus and all relate to how it hits the tongue when tasting the two together.  This creates a fuller experience and enhances the flavors of the alcohol.  Adding a dash of vinegar to simple cocktails adds an excited depth and complexity.
