Buffala Negra

October 17, 2014


As the weather has finally decided to be a little more “fall-like” this week, I’ve decided to get into the spirit with some fall decor and cooler weather libations.  I’m not a big Halloween person, and this cocktail is about the closest thing I’ll get to “scary.”  Its black color and bourbon base, lend itself to being the perfect spooky drink!


Bufala Negra

  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 6 basil leaves
  • 1/2 oz balsamic syrup
  • 2 oz ginger beer
  1. Muddle balsamic syrup and basil in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add ice, bourbon and give a few hard shakes for 20 seconds or so.
  3. Strain into an ice filled low ball glass and top with ginger beer.
  4. Garnish with basil and enjoy!

* To make the syrup combine 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup simple syrup (1:1) in a saucepan over medium high heat.  Bring to a boil and reduce heat and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from stove and let cool completely before use.
