The subtle smoky notes of the vanilla are complimented by the bourbon while the sour tamarind and sweet elements of the vanilla liqueur help create balance. “I describe the cocktail as an adult sarsaparilla,” says Sharpe of her creation, which is meant to invigorate the senses and cleanse the body.
