To make the black pepper infused syrup: combine 150g crushed black pepper (pref. Tellicherry), with 800g simple syrup. Place in an iSi container and charge twice with N2O, shaking between charges. Allow to sit for 5 minutes and vent quickly. Strain through a cheesecloth. Alternatively you could make a simple syrup in the usual stovetop way, except add the crushed black pepper to the mix.
