Smokey Manhattan

smokymanhattanThis 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)!

Smokey Manhattan

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!
