We recently visited Pueblo's Bite Me Cupcake and fell in love with its signature pink champagne cupcake (it's very cute). But while it is an enticing treat, some may prefer to drink their sweets.

Last year, Axe and the Oak shared an interesting Strawberry Black Pepper Sour recipe with us, a guest favorite at the Whiskey House. Further down the sweetness scale from a cupcake, this melding of the flavors makes this drink unforgettable — even if you've had a few. The trick is in the strawberry black pepper simple syrup; fresh strawberries are sweetened further with sugar, while the black peppercorns and jalapeño add a memorable bite.
If you're one to leave the experimenting to experts, though, here's this week's Happy Hour lineup:
