This cocktail is an adaptation of Peter Hoffman's the Red and the Black. Sweet, tart, with just a little spice, it is the perfect drink, especially on a hot summer afternoon.

  • Serves: 2
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • 2 quarts Strawberries (Hulled and Halved)
  • 0.5 cup Black Pepper Simple Syrup
  • 1.25 cups Lime Juice
  • 2.5 cups Blanco Tequila
  1. Muddle the strawberries in a large pitcher.
  2. Add the tequila, fresh lime juice, and 1/4 cup of the black pepper simple syrup to the pitcher
  3. Taste the cocktail. If you would like it sweeter add more of the black pepper syrup until it is sweet enough for your taste.
  4. You can serve it now over ice or put it in the refrigerator and let the flavors meld while it chills.
  5. Enjoy!
