Triple Jerry @ Pisces Sushi Bar & Lounge


Sorry, I haven’t posted anything recently guys, I’ve been getting my learn on down in New Orleans for Tales of the Cocktail.  I figured a new cocktail spotlight would be a perfect post back.

The uber talented Bob Peters has given Sailor Jerry a spicy twist in his newest concoction.  Recipe is below, though you’d have to go to Pisces to try the real thing.

Triple Jerry

Sailor Jerry Rum

Triple pepper simple syrup (red chilli, Szechuan pepper corn, guajillo peppers)

Fresh lime
