If you are a Bloody Mary fan, you have to give the Central Park a try because it is very interesting. This tomato juice highball doesn't have the spice of the more famous drink, but instead has a mellow, flavorful aspect in which the tomato and touch of cayenne are accented with New Amsterdam Gin and vanilla extract. Yes, you read that right, vanilla. It doesn't sound quite right but the result is refreshing and adds a touch of sweetness.
