Winning cocktail: Maestranza

1.5 oz Pink peppercorn infused Patrón Silver*
0.5 oz Rubino Vermouth di Torino
2 oz Fermented papaya juice*
0.75 oz Key lime juice
0.5 oz Guava cordial*
Pink peppercorn garnish

*Pink peppercorn infused Patrón Silver:
Add 1 tablespoon of pink peppercorns to 16 oz of tequila. Shake periodically over 48 hours and then strain out the solids and rebottle.

*Fermented papaya juice:
Pour the juice from two papayas into a mason jar. Add 2 tablespoons of honey and the rind of an organic Florida pineapple. Let the natural yeast from the pineapple rind ferment the mixture for 3 days. Strain out the solids and bottle for another 2 days, letting the gas out of the mixture periodically to avoid explosion.

*Guava cordial:
Add 4 parts guava juice to 3 parts granulated white sugar. Stir until the sugar is absorbed into the liquid.

Add all ingredients, except fermented papaya, to cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously over one large rock for 8-10 seconds.

Double strain into double old fashioned glass over one large cube.

Top with the sparkling fermented papaya juice. Grind pink peppercorn over the top as garnish.
