This is a fantastic recipe that I must thank John Mitzewich for passing along to me. As he says, "(As Night Falls was) served exclusively at the Chateau de Grey Goose. Created during the 2009 Food & Wine Classic in Aspen. This cocktail was inspired by a traditional Italian aperitif, and features a spicy citrus tang."

It is a delicious and unique cocktail with a lot going on. The spices play off of the orange and grapefruit in a manner that is quite surprising. Do make sure and muddle the peppercorns well before proceeding with the preparation and double strain to ensure that all are out of the finished drink.
