"Pink peppercorns have a uniquely pungent and slightly sweet flavor. You can find them on-line and in many of the finer spice isles."

"You could substitute peppermint extract and use crushed peppermint candies instead of the pink peppercorns."

"Pink peppercorns can be found at

www.penzeys.com. They ship their spices.
They may have a store near you also.
You might also try Whole Foods if you have one in your area."
