Once again, contrary to popular belief, I did not invent this drink. It was created by Wendy Watson at Marche, specifically for the Bamboo cocktail menu. It was one of our more popular drinks – a definite chick drink.
I hate it when bartenders do a half-assed job on the sugared rim, make it too deep, sloppy or whatever. Moisten the rim of the cocktail glass while it’s upside down, and use the end of a lime to do it. Dip that glass gently, and not too deep, into a plate of sugar. Get the rim too wet, and you have sugar dribbling down the sides of the glass. Too dry and the sugar won’t stick. Anyway. here’s the recipe:

- 2 oz vanilla vodka
- ¾ oz vanilla schnapps
- 1 oz fresh lime juice
- ¾ oz simple syrup
- Shake well and strain into that cocktail glass that you did such a good job sugaring. Garnish with a wedge of lime.
