Used red wine vinegar (didn't have malt) and added a red chilli and 2cm piece of ginger and it was very nice.

Really easy to make and it tastes fantastic. I used it to coat chicken and ribs and my husband used it as a dip for his Doritos! As I had blended it I put some fromage frais through it and made it into a smoother dip and it was delicious!
