3/4 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, chilled
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
3 tablespoons chopped dry-roasted pistachios
Mint sprigs (optional)
How to Make It
Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl. Cover and let stand at room temperature 1 hour.

Solid, but not blow me away. I did substitute Triple Sec for the Grand Marnier so maybe that would have been better. My company enjoyed it and it was light and perfect way to finsih a summer meal, but nothing too exciting.
