Lotus doll

At Chinoiserie, the drink menu offers 15 martini-shaped concoctions ($10 apiece), each given its own cute name. I tried the Lotus Doll (Grey Goose vodka, Champagne, litchi extract), Last Emperor (green-tea-infused Grey Goose vodka) and Ginger Cosmopolitan (Absolut citron, cranberry juice, Cointreau, ginger liqueur). The next morning I had regrets. Skipping the Tigress Milk (Bacardi 151, Cognac, half-and-half, nutmeg powder) was not among them. The mai tai has grown up, and it packs a wallop.
