Life is a Grind – The Black Pepper Madtini

Black Pepper Martini

Black Pepper Martini

We’re huge pepper fans here at Madtini Labs and when one of our Lab Intoxicologists saw this recipe on Chow.com for a Black Pepper Martini, we knew we had to try it. Its the not the type of drink you can turn around in a few minutes so make sure you have enough time in advance to make the syrup. The taste comes through as sophisticated with a warm peppery aftertaste. Highly recommended.

Cheers and happy Sunday from Madtini Labs!
