Black pepper

Black pepper, for use in cocktail recipes

Black pepper is a critical component in the tomato-based family of Snapper drinks, like the Red Snapper or the Bloody Mary. The pepper adds some flavor to these drinks, but it’s the smell we’re after. Use fresh-ground pepper, and get it on the ice at the top of the glass. The ice won’t submerge if you’ve got enough if it, so every time you take a sip you’ll get a fragrant nose of pepper. Don’t sneeze!

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
