Beautiful Red Bell (pepper and gin) recipe

Published August 31, 2010 12:20AM (EDT)


  • 2 ounces gin (the recipe calls for Hendrick's, which is my favorite gin)
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • ¾ ounce fresh lime juice
  • 2 thin slices red bell pepper
  • 2 mint leaves


  1. In a mixing glass, muddle the red bell pepper in the simple syrup and the lime juice. Add mint, gin and ice. Shake vigorously (mine was so well-shaken that there were bits of mint floating in the glass. I wonder if he might have also muddled the mint, in fact, but that's not what he wrote down). Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a slice of red bell pepper.
