The idea for this came after a pea-shoot lunch we held at Hix Oyster & Chop House a few years ago.
A couple of handfuls of pea shoots, washed
50ml Plymouth gin
20ml sugar syrup
The juice of ½ a lemon
2 pea pods, to serve
Place the pea shoots in a liquidiser with 2 tablespoons of water and blend to make a smooth purée.
Half fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Add the gin, pea shoot purée, sugar syrup and lemon juice and shake for 10-15 seconds.
Strain into 2 chilled martini or coupé glasses. Split the peas in their pods and push on to the side of the glasses to serve.
