Pepper and Spruce Tip Dirty Martini
To pickle the spruce tips, we used an infusion of Green Peppercorn, Black Vietnamese Peppercorn, and Long Pepper. The combination adds a spicy and savory punch to the natural flavor of the spruce tips. With so many strong flavors at play, it made sense to opt for a vodka martini over gin, to avoid adding the intensity of juniper to the mix.
The final result is a bold martini that combines woody aromatics with rich briny notes and a slight peppery bite. Give it a try!
