“Don't let its simple appearance fool you; blended Scotch and black pepper add subtle smoke and spice to make this drink more complex the longer you sip.” – Leah Schoenburg

*just below the 1/2 oz mark of your jigger

Bar Tools: Jigger or measuring cup, muddler or teaspoon, mixing beaker, bar spoon, julep strainer, fine mesh strainer or tea strainer
Glass: Rocks

Each box includes all ingredients including garnish. Bar tools and glassware not included but can be ordered separately.

  1. Chill Rocks Glass by placing in fridge/freezer or by filling with ice water and setting aside for 5 minutes (optional.)
  2. Using a muddler or teaspoon, gently muddle the measured amounts of cracked black peppercorns, lemon bitters and mint syrup in the bottom of Mixing Beaker.
  3. Measure and add Johnnie Walker Black Label to Mixing Beaker.
  4. Fill Mixing Beaker about two thirds full with fresh ice.

Have you met my friend John

This was our first cocktail courier order – a gift from our son for Christmas – and we enjoyed it. Loved the smoothness and appreciated the balance of boozy with a little bit of sweet; especially loved the heat from the pepper. We prefer our cocktails on the boozy and not-so-sweet side, so this was perfect.
