Snap Fever

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.
