It's about damn time: Sunday marks the first "official" day of Spring. Accordingly, this is our first "official" Chicaholic post of the season. We stole this one from Belvedere Vodka's head of spirit creation & mixology Claire Smith, using the brand's new UF80. In lieu of the classic Bloody Mary brunch, try the Lemon & Black Pepper Collins. It's random. It's luxe. It's unlikely you'll stop at one.
Lemon & Black Pepper Collins
1.5 oz Belvedere UF80
1/2 black pepper simple syrup*
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
pinch of black pepper
Shake and strain into an ice filled highball glass and top with soda (ideally, Fever Tree).
*Black Pepper Simple Syrup: crush 3 teaspoons of black pepper and pour into a saucepan of boiling water. To the water, add super fine sugar and stir until the water becomes syrup like in consistency. Strain and chill. Will keep for one week if refrigerated.
