Black Pepper Martini

When it comes to a martini, everyone has his personal preference. In this exotic take on the classic, the gin is definitely the star, but a splash of pepper syrup adds unexpected heat.

What to buy: We tried this cocktail with very dry, less perfumed gin, but Hendrick’s won for its moderate juniper and floral flavors.

We also sampled dry and very dry vermouths, and found that, even with the addition of the pepper syrup, a dry vermouth like Noilly Prat had the best balance.

This recipe was featured as part of our Bring Happy Hour Home cocktail party menu.

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Stir with a bar spoon, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Serve.
