Lemon Pepper Wet

A play on a whiskey sour, that highlights the wood and caramel notes of Makers Mark, and embodies the flavor of the A!

Glassware: Coupe Glass

Ingredients
  • 2 oz makers mark
  • 1 oz fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 oz black pepper simple syrup
  • .25 oz yellow chartreuse
  • 4 dashes bitter truth lemon bitters
  • 5 drops toasted sesame oil

Combine ingredients in shaker. Strain into a coupe glass. Express lemon peel and garnish with peel and fresh ground black pepper

Black pepper simple:
  • 1c sugar
  • 1c water
  • 4 oz black pepper

Combine water and pepper in a saucepan until water comes to a simmer. Add sugar and stir. Let simmer 3 mins. Turn off heat and let sit 10mins. Strain into an airtight container.

Garnish: 3-4 inch peel, but about 1/2 inch wide. Cut at 45 degree angle at top to create a point. Make a slice starting about 1/4 inch from top of peel going about halfway down. Make another slice another 1/4 inch down, cutting from middle to bottom left corner, repeat going to the bottom right corner. Remove excess peel. Wrap around to create a twist, place on lip of glass.
