Black pepper seems odd with sweet berries, but the contrast is delightful, especially with summery basil.


  • 2 basil leaves
  • 2 strawberries
  • 1 part Jim Beam Black
  • 1/2 part JDK & Sons O3 Premium Orange Liqueur or DeKuyper Triple Sec
  • 2 parts lemon sour
  • Ice
  • Freshly ground black pepper, for garnish



Muddle basil and 1 strawberry in a mixing glass. Add all remaining ingredients except garnish and shake with ice. Double-strain into a blender. Add fresh ice and blend until smooth. Garnish with remaining strawberry on the rim and a few grinds of pepper.
