This cocktail combines just about all my favorite vanilla pairings in one. The vanilla extract + spice covered my first, which is vanilla and all-spice. I wanted to combine that with a trio of citrus (key lime, lemon and citron) and just a hint of ginger and vegetal from the green tea. When it all comes together this cocktail has beautiful texture, sweetness and tartness with vanilla running through every note.
