Preheat the oven to 200C / 400F
In a small bowl mix together the balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, grated ginger and soy sauce.
Lay the drumsticks out on a baking tray that is big enough to allow them to lay in an even layer.
Using a basting, or pastry brush, brush each drumstick gererously with the marinade. There will be plenty left in the bowl, just put it to one side for now.
Place the baking tray into the oven and cook for 35-40 minutes.
Some balsamic vinegars are thick and syrupy, and some are more watery.
If the balsamic vinegar you have is thick and syrupy, add 2 teaspoons of water to the bowl to think it out a little.
Halfway through the cooking time, carefully remove the baking tin from the oven, and brush the meat with the marinade again.
Pour the remaining marinade into the bottom of the pan and return to oven to finish cooking.
When the cooking time is up, I recommend leaving the drumsticks in the tray for people to help themselves to as there will be an incredible layer of that sticky goo that would be sinful to let go to waste.
Serve with beer or crusty bread and salads.
