Kind of like the Vanilla Ginger Greyhound, the signature cocktail at North Italia, which opened yesterday in Uptown. This simple take on a traditional day drink gives a delightful note of vanilla and a slight touch of ginger to what is usually an overpoweringly bitter juice. Even better, the vodka will be hair of the dog that will right your indiscretions from the night before. (Well, at least one of them.)
Catch it before it's gone.
Vanilla Ginger Greyhound ($10): house ginger- and vanilla-infused vodka, muddled grapefruit, simple syrup, lemon, grapefruit juice
