The Capone Cocktail

This cocktail combines two of Al Capone’s major imports for a fancy, exotic drink

“Two of Al Capone's major imports were whiskey and balsamic vinegar, legend has it he asked his people make him a drink that included both. We went the extra step and included some garden fresh tomatoes. A sweet reminder of the home country.... This recipe was adapted from the Bufala Negra Cocktail,” says Trisha Antonsen, chief cocktail officer at Drizly.com.
