I made a Szechuan Peppercorn simple syrup last night and used it in an Old Fashioned, Whiskey Sour, Caipirinha, and a few other cocktails. Great stuff! I made a strong tea with fresh ground SP (which perfumed my whole house), then made a simple syrup from the filtered tea. Just love that spicy, tingly, feeling and that floral and citrusy taste the SP have. I got the SP from Penzey's in Grand Central Station in NYC a few days aho. I think this is one of the best batches of SP I have had.
