Behind the Stick with Jacob Fisher of Moniker General

The latest addition to the retail stop Moniker General, The Bar, is where you can find some tasty libations crafted by the bar manager, Jacob Fisher. The Portland native created a cocktail inspired from a libation he had on a date that had cayenne pepper in it. On the latest Behind the Stick, we featured his refreshing, light gimlet called Sgt. Peppers.

Sgt. Peppers Gimlet


2 oz Fords Gin

2 oz Ginger Lime Cordial

1 shake Cayenne Pepper

Garnish with Lime Twist

What's the story behind the Sgt. Peppers Gimlet?

While on a date, I had this drink in Portland, Oregon that blew my mind! It had gin, blood orange and pepper. I went back to the same place a few months later and they had no clue what I was talking about! I set out to recreate the experience, thus was born the Sgt. Peppers Gimlet.

Describe the taste.

For me, it's refreshing and balanced, It's hard to have just one.

What's the key component of this drink?

I would say the Ginger Lime Cordial takes the cake!
