Podracer: A Pea Cocktail

Pea Cocktail Podracer

A cocktail that’s so fresh and so spring.

Stuart Weaver of Lady Jane in Denver brings together all his favorite spring greens in one drink, a pea cocktail. “Sotol is made from a plant in the asparagus family,” he says. “And my favorite spring dishes are peas, asparagus, and mint—yum!”


  • Tools:shaker, strainer, fine strainer
  • Glass:coupe
  • Garnish:mint bouquet


Add all of the ingredients to a shaker with ice. Shake until chilled, then fine strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish.

Pea-Infused Sotol and Tequila Blend Blend sotol and blanco tequila together 2:1 (2 parts sotol/1 part tequila). Add 20 grams of pea shoots and 100 grams of English peas (washed, opened, and separated/include both the shells and the peas) per every liter of blend. Circulate for 2 hours in a 150 degree F bath (or let it sit at room temperature for 24 hours) and store in a clean, dry bottle in the refrigerator. Keeps for 1 month.
