The humble pea… I, for one love the sweet little things! They are full of antioxidants and vitamins, and are known to improve heart health. They are high in protein and can even boost your immune system. Their sweet flavor matches so well with lemon and elderflower. St. Germain is an amazing elderflower liqueur, so give it a try.

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 1/3  cup cooked peas .
  • 4 teaspoons agave nectar
  • 3-1/2 oz. fresh cucumber juice (from about 1/2 cucumber)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice .
  • 1 sprig of tarragon .
  • 2 oz. vodka
  • 2 oz. St. Germain .
  • Ice cubes .
  • Peas in their pods, pea sprouts, thin cucumber slices, to garnish

Equipment

Cocktail shaker, Muddler, Cocktail strainer and 2 coupe glasses



Directions

Place the peas and agave nectar into a cocktail shaker and muddle well for 1 minute. You want to extract as much pea flavor and juice as possible. Pour in the cucumber juice, lemon juice, tarragon, vodka, and St. Germain. Half-fill the cocktail shaker with ice cubes and replace the top. Shake vigorously for 1 minute. Strain into the glasses, making sure to get a nice layer of froth in each glass. Garnish with an opened pea pod, pea sprouts, and cucumber slices.
