Do you know the recipe for this drink?

A restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale called YOLO makes a drink called a Strawberry Kiss. It's made with strawberries, vodka, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, and cracked black pepper. Anybody got a recipe?

You don't have much to lose by asking the bartender. This looks like it's similar - the lemon juice may be a touch added by that bar. There are plenty of resources available regarding balsamic reductions.

Sounds similar to this:

Boa 405
From Boa, Santa Monica, California
2 strawberries, hulled and halved
1/2 ounce sugar syrup
1.5 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
dash of balsamic vinegar
large pinch of coarsely cracked black pepper

From here.

And err, the actual instructions, from the same place:

"In a cocktail shaker, muddle the strawberries and syrup. Add the vodka, lemon juice, vinegar and ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with pepper."

Thanks for the starting points...it's going to be fun experimenting.

I haven't actually had this drink. A friend keeps raving about it, and it made me want to try it.
