This gorgeous cocktail was specifically created for our new friend David’s recent birthday party. When discussing possible cocktails for his soiree he kept coming back to one thing: the dude loved smokey. But not as in peaty Scotch smokiness, but as in wood smoke. So we thought, hey, we can use a smoking gun and smoke ourselves some bourbon. And that’s what we did and it was delicious. Get your hands on some applewood and a smoking gun, folks (you’ll also need a tube and another bottle to split the booze in half to properly smoke it, but it is that easy)!
2 oz Smoked Bourbon (we used Applewood wood chips and 4 Roses Bourbon)
1 oz Dolin Sweet Vermouth
1 barspoon Luxardo
a couple dashes of Angostura Aromatic bitters
Old fashion orange garnish
Build all ingredients in a mixing glass, add ice, stir, strain and garnish. Viola!
