What should we do with… Peapod Vodka?

16 Comments

Sometimes I just have to try…

Back in June, the sugarsnap peas in our tiny little garden were thriving! And they were so delicious… So I just had to try it out; peapods and vodka. Now I’m not quite sure what to do with it, other than maybe add it to cream sauce or risotto. Any suggestions?

Peapod Vodka

1/2 c. chopped peapods

3/4 c. vodka

Combine and infuse for 1-2 weeks. Strain and filter.

The flavor is actually quite nice. It tastes like the delicious peapods from my garden… any cocktail ideas?

  1. Not sure with cocktails, but lemons come to mind..we often use lemon zest with fresh peas,,, maybe peapod vodka, lemon, sugar and a touch of chartreuse or absinthe for more herbal notes…

    Maybe a light curry peasoup, then combine and serve this as a shooter / amuse bouche…just a thought..

    Either way…It does sound kinda fun…

  2. I have absolutely no idea what you can do with peapod vodka, but I just have to say I am totally jealous of your parents’ garden. Yowza!

    • Thanks Lauren. Yes, their garden is pretty crazy. I think peas are about the only thing they don’t grow. I came home on Saturday with tons of tomatoes, peppers, plums and kale and spent the weekend canning spicy tomato jam and Asian plum sauce.

      • Alicia, I got a great recipe for caprese jam from punk domestics. It was really good, and everyone I gave it to loved it. It was a nice variety of tomato jam.

  3. That’s a good one! suugarsnaps are so delicious… maybe in a cocktail with cointreau? I like sauteeing fresh peas with orange zest, I think a little citrus and peas goes well together. That’s the best I can come up with lol. And I agree with Lauren, your parents garden looks incredible!

    • Thanks! The Cointreau idea is a good one. You are the second person to suggest a citrus pairing, so we will probably do something like that. And yes, that garden is ridiculous! My car was loaded up with free produce after a few hours of picking tomatoes, plums, berries and kale.

  4. Interesting idea! Perhaps it would go well with a sweeter (less spicy) Bloody Mary?! It would accent the vegetable flavors nicely😉

  5. I know that I love Cucumber vodka with club soda. I bet the pea vodka would be great that way too. So you can really appreciate the pea taste. Simple.

  6. This sounds like one I’d enjoy on its own. Like Shawntel I’m a fan of Cucumber vodka and also Bison Grass vodka. Peapod could be rather pleasant with bruised mint and basil leaves, ice & lime, topped up with tonic.

    P.S. thanks for bringing your site to my attention by commenting on mine. You have some great ideas here. I’ll pointing one of my friends in your direction too as she makes lots of sauces, chutneys & drinks – especially using different chillis.🙂 Shaz x

  7. I feel like this could be an awesome base for a super fresh bloody mary inspired thing, with tomato juice (made in a juicer) and a bit of horseradish?
