Cut the habanero chile into wedges. Be very careful, the capsaicin in a Habenero is very dangerous, make sure you know how to handle the pepper. Stir the vodka and vermouth in some ice, then strain into a cocktail glass. Squeeze a little Habanero into the glass and garnish with a piece of the chile.
