I've only had it straight once in my life, and that was when I was a lot younger (and more crazy, stupid, etc.). Some friends and I were playing "Quarters" one night. Keep in mind that this was before we all had been introduced to the wonders of alcohol. We were using household liquids, mainly of the edible variety, for the contents of the shot glass. Anyhow, I had the unfortunate opportunity of drinking a shot glass full of vinegar. BLECH! You could not even imagine the concoctions that were ingested that night! :disgust:
Depends on what kind of vinegar. If it is straight distilled vinegar I don't think I could drink that. But like others here have said, if I have a salad with vinagrette I always sop up the leftover dressing with a piece of bread.
I use to like a bit of Malt Vinegar on my Fish and Chips, well, one day it spilt over to the french fries. I tried a few and it was good. I became more and more addicted to this malt vinegar. One day it spilt over to the cole slaw, and it wasn't bad. Now when going to a fish and chips restaurant, I pour malt vinegar on everything. I don't mean a few drops, I mean SOAKED in malt vinegar. I think its great! I don't think I could drink it plain though.
