Best New Shooter

The Vanilla Coke at the Village Tavern

March 09, 2011

They have a great new look and a much better selection of beer, wine, and booze at this revamped Mt. Pleasant tavern and music venue. While fine-tuning the menu and set-up, one bartender accidentally devised a new recipe for a shooter. A patron asked for a napkin and water. He thought he heard "Captain and water" so he served it up. Not wanting to waste it, the bar man added some vanilla vodka, a little grenadine, and a splash of Coca-Cola, thus creating the Vanilla Coke shot. It's catching on.
