Just a few weeks after the newspaper erroneously suggested adding peas to guacamole, the Times Magazine is back again, suggesting that peas are a great tequila mixer. Yes, vegetables and tequila in the same glass! In an article entitled "Drink Your Vegetables", drink columnist Rosie Schapp recommends a pea-soaked cocktail. "Tequila mingles joyfully with other produce," Schapp writes. Dawn Kinstle, a bartender in South Slope -- where else -- has created a pea and tequila cocktail named the Chícharo Pea-queño, "in which juice from the pods of English peas is combined with tequila, mint, lime and just a touch of salt to bright, refreshing and gorgeously green effect." Refreshing. The recipe for the Chícharo Pea-queño is published online-- the recipe requires straining your own English peapod juice...--, if you dare to add some extra vitamins to your drinking regimen. @NYTMag tweeted a picture of the Green Giant as "a previously unreleased photo of our editor in chief " and we're not entirely sure they're joking. #PeaGate By MELISSA KRAVITZ Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Comments We're revamping our Comments section.
