• 750-ml bottle of vodka or tequila
  • 1/2 cup black, pink, and/or white peppercorns


Decant the spirits into a clean 2-quart (2-liter) glass container with a tight-Fitting lid. Soak the original bottle to remove the label. Let dry.

Using a mortar and pestle, crush the peppercorns slightly. Add to the spirits. Allow the spirits to infuse away from direct sunlight and intense heat for 2 to 4 weeks. Shake the container a few times each week.

When you're satisfied with the intensity of flavor, strain the liqueur through a coffee filter. Discard the peppercorns.

Using a funnel, pour the liqueur into the original bottle (or another container). Label with the name of the liqueur and the date. Age the liqueur for 1 month away from light and heat.
