Bar Notes

Back in the day, a pint of black peppercorns was steeped in vodka for six weeks to create a mixture called liquid black pepper, a dash of which gave the vodka itself a real blast of flavor. In New England, lobster claws and cooked lobster meat are available year round. Simply leave this garnish out if unavailable.
