  • prep
  • 4 servings


  • 2½ ounces black pepper-infused vodka

  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed black peppercorns

  • 1 cup vodka

  • ½ ounce black olive brine

  • ½ ounce dry vermouth

Cooking Directions

  1. To make the black pepper-infused vodka: Mix crushed peppercorns into vodka in an airtight container and seal. Allow to infuse for 1-3 days for optimal taste. For a shortcut, allow to infuse for 6-12 hours. Strain solids from liquid and store indefinitely. To make the martini: Start by prepping a coupe or martini glass. Place ground pepper in a small dish, run lemon wedge along edge of glass, then dip glass into pepper to rim. Set aside. In a mixing glass with ice, add vodka, olive brine, and vermouth, and stir until chilled. Strain into prepped glass and garnish with an olive.
