Shake all of the ingredients with ice, strain into an ice-filled Collins glass, top with seltzer and garnish.

Peppercorn-infused tequila: Muddle ¼ cup of pink peppercorns, then add to a bottle of blanco tequila. Shake, then let rest for 30 minutes. Once finished, strain through a tea strainer or cheesecloth and return to the bottle.
