The dry cleansing balsamic vinegar alongside a good buttery Chardonnay and golden rum makes The Rum Pickle a great aperitivo.

Depending on your wine and vinegar, you may need to reduce the amount of vinegar, or up the amount of sugar to achieve a harmonious balance.

Inspiration: "Rum Pickle represents not just a cocktail, but also a modern Nordic cocktail category that stems from our heritage and tradition when it comes to what we drink and how we eat.

"The category 'Pickle' consists of a spirit, a lengthener, sugar and vinegar. Using the same ratios it can be replicated to any other form and the result still remains the same - an aperitivo kind of a drink where the vinegar brings the acid that refreshes the drink as well as telling a story about how we in the Nordics have preserved our food for centuries."
