What can I do with vanilla vodka, besides give it away?

The Mary Jane Cocktail

2 ounces vanilla vodka
1 ounce Belle de Brillet (Cognac-based pear liqueur)
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
2 dashes Peychaud's Bitters
Lime twist garnish

Shake for 10 seconds and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with the lime peel.

Correction on Step 3 -- DO NOT spread the condiments on the bun this early! Well, not unless you want a soggy bun. Add the condiments last.

Your favorite Campari drinks.

In honor of the late great Cinnabar in Glendale (oh, how I miss them), try the Cinnabar Negroni, which is a great Campari blast!

2 ounces Campari
1 ounce gin
1 ounce sweet vermouth
2 dashes orange bitters
Stir with ice for 30 seconds and strain, orange slice garnish.

We also like one called the La Rosita, created by Robert Hess ( It never occurred to me to blend tequila and Campari, but the flavors complement one another marvelously.

1-1/2 ounces reposado tequila
1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
1/2 ounce Campari
Stir with ice for 30 seconds and strain, no garnish.
