    I am going to try and visit your bar when I come home to the Bay in mid-August. I would like a Purple Cup with Plymouth Gin please!
  • Blackbird Bar
    We can do that!
  • Andy S.
    I'm always interested when someone can craft a cocktail that will work with well any base spirit. Very cool, and thanks for sharing.
  • Blackbird Bar
    Thanks, with some picky drinkers out there you have to have these fail safes...
  • Dani DeLuna
    Y'all, I had it with Plymouth Gin and it was everything I hoped for! Thanks Matt!

    If it's okay with you I'm using your brilliance. I'll find a new way to do it but well done sir
  • Blackbird Bar
    Thanks Matty. Kind words

    For the white pepper tincture, do you use tea bags of the pepper steeped in vodka? Never made one before.
  • Blackbird Bar
    Wes, I grind the pepper and let it soak in over proof vodka. Taste to find result desired. Pretty sure it's a quick one but let it go until you like the flavor. Cheers!
