This cocktail is an adaptation by Rebecca Beyer Winik at OurHarvest of Peter Hoffman’s the Red and the Black. Sweet, tart, with just a little spice, it is the perfect drink, especially on a hot summer afternoon.

Muddle the strawberries in a large pitcher, then add the tequila, fresh lime juice, and 1/4 cup of the black pepper simple syrup to the pitcher. Taste the cocktail. If you would like it sweeter add more of the black pepper syrup until it is sweet enough for your taste. Serve it now over ice or put it in the refrigerator and let the flavors meld while it chills.
