Cocktail Recipe: Sweet Pea Cocktail

When I heard of the Sweet Pea cocktail I really had to think a bit before I decided to try it. I mean really, peas? In a cocktail? Well, I’m so glad I tried it! I found the original recipe at the Bon Appetit blog. I changed a few things to make it more my taste. I tested it out on friends who enjoyed it… so, I feel pretty safe in saying that this is a great cocktail for Spring or Summer.

  1. In a shaker pour gin, peas, lemon juice, and sugar over ice. 
  2. SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE. You want the peas to get nice and pummeled.

  4. If you feel like it…. garnish with a pea, a sugar snap pea, or a lemon slice.

      I didn’t discover my love for gin until way to late… and, man…. is it AMAZING. I really love gins in drinks that feature veggies and herbs.

    Wow! I would have never thought of sweet peas in a cocktail. I still can’t say it sounds appetizing, but I’m curious enough that I’ll give the recipe a try.
