The Chellis Special

Though not specifically referenced in the Terry Griggs's forthcoming Thought You Were Dead, I have it on good authority that Chellis Beith's favourite dessert is the above concoction, a mix of ice cream, freshly ground pepper and single malt scotch. Preferably the Laphroaig 10 year old, though it is getting hard to come by these days, ever since the Chinese began buying it all up. The pricier Lagavulin will work in a pinch (Athena Havlock's tipple).

Chellis isn't much for measurements: the only instructions he cares to offer is mix to taste. But if you're in need of a touch more direction, I've found the following:



  1. Divide the ice cream into 4 bowls.
  2. Grind the black pepper over the ice cream, about 6 grinds per portion.
  3. Pour one tablespoon of Scotch over each dish and serve.
