Sir, Some Freshly Ground Pepper for my Drink!

So, all of the sudden I seem to be stumbling across cocktails with pepper in them. No, I’m not talking about Bloody Marys either. Here are two I’ve enjoyed recently:

Boris Karloff

  • 3/4 oz gin
  • 3/4 oz St-Germain elderflower liqueur
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbs confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 oz chilled club soda
  • Pinch each of finely grated lime zest and freshly ground pepper, for garnish

In a cocktail shaker, combine the gin, elderflower liqueur, lime juice, sugar and egg white. Dry shake. Add ice and shake again.  Strain into an ice-filled Collins glass, stir in club soda and garnish with lime zest and pepper.

And one with cayenne pepper in it called the Tante Marie Fizz. I happen to have a bottle of the Whitley Neill gin and it’s very nice in this cocktail. I found this one through Saveur magazine. Click below to go to the recipe.
