RIP Philo

Second attempt at Posca

A popular beverege that Romans drank for 1000 years and noone bothered to mention the recipe because heck what's the point, everyone knew it.

So my first attempt was to mix white refined winegar with room-temperature water. Resulting taste: disgusting.

Second attempt: aceto balsamico di modena and cold, sparkling mineral water (about 1 part vinegar and 10 parts water). Resulting taste: quite good.

You should have followed my recipes. I've been making this stuff for years.

Gladiators were vegetarians. They ate vegetables. But they put posca on it as a strengthening and healing health tonic.

This is the origin of italian salad dressing and salad.

Don't use vinegar, use wine. But an acidic wine. They don't make those anymore. You have to make it yourself.

"aceto balsamico di modena"

What brand?

100% of this shit sold in the US, including italian imports is totally fake.

Actual balsamic vinegar costs a fortune and is almost impossible to find outside of italy. It also tastes totally different from the absolute crap that is sold in the US by italian con artists, which is just cheap red vinegar plus flavoring.

>> What brand?

Bought at Lidl ( ) for about $5, so it must be genuine.
