cost per recipe: $3.07

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns
  • 2 strawberries
  • 1 can (8 ounces) V8 +HYDRATE® Strawberry Cucumber, chilled
  • 2 fluid ounces gin (about 1/4 cup)
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon lavender bitters
  • 1/2 cup ginger beer, chilled


  • Tips

    • Recipe Note: You can substitute Szechuan peppercorns for the black peppercorns if you prefer a more aromatic and less peppery flavor.
  • Step 1

    Stir the sugar and water in a microwavable bowl.  Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute or until the mixture boils.  Stir until the sugar is dissolved.  Add the peppercorns and let stand for 10 minutes.  Strain and discard the peppercorns.

  • Step 2

    Place the strawberries into a cocktail shaker.  Using a muddler or the back end of a wooden spoon, muddle the strawberries (lightly crush against the side of the shaker to release flavor). 

  • Step 3

    Add the V8, gin, lemon juice, bitters and 1 tablespoon sugar mixture (reserve the rest for another use).  Cover and shake until combined.  Stir in the ginger beer.  Strain the mixture into 2 ice-filled glasses.  Garnish with additional strawberries or cucumber slices, if desired.
