This signals late spring early summer to me, when pea pods are everywhere: Discarded ones on the street, fresh ones in the shops and some in my cocktail kitchen.
- 5 cl gin
- 5 cl fresh lemon juice
- 15 fresh peas
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 3 bay leafs
Lightly blanch the peas in unsalted boiling water immediately transferring them to cold water. Muddle 13 peas with the honey and 2 bay leaves in a shaker. Add ice, the gin and the lemon juice and shake well.
Strain into a low ball glass and garnish with the last 2 peas and the remaining bay leaf.
