If you want to add smoke directly into your cocktail, you’ll need a smoke gun. Yes, a handheld smoker is the latest weapon in a barman’s (not to mention barbecue fanatic’s) arsenal. I recommend both The Smoking Gun by PolyScience and The Aladin Smoker.
So how do you actually smoke a cocktail with wood smoke?
- Coat the inside of the glass with smoke flavor. Fill an inverted bar glass with smoke. Tightly cover the glass with a coaster and turn it back over. Let stand for one to two minutes. Add the cocktail and serve immediately, with the glass still smoking.
