  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

Pink peppercorns have a tropical, warm, spicy quality that Jennifer Colliau likes: "They really punch up fresh pineapple." To keep some of the crushed peppercorns in the drink, she often pours the tea mixture through a julep strainer instead of a fine strainer.

  1. 1 tablespoon pink peppercorns
  2. Four 1-inch chunks of fresh pineapple
  3. Ice
  4. 2 ounces chilled brewed green tea
  5. 1/2 ounce agave nectar
  6. 1 grapefruit twist, for garnish
  1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the pink peppercorns. Add the pineapple; muddle again. Add ice, the tea and agave nectar; shake well. Fine strain into an ice-filled double rocks glass. Garnish with the twist.
