Flavor Profile
Season Spring / Summer


2 parts TX Bourbon
0.25 parts Smoked Simple Syrup
Handful Wood Shavings
2 dashes Angostura Bitters


1 Place a handful of wood chips on a plank of thick wood or ceramic platen. We prefer shavings from a bourbon barrel stave, but you can also use Pecan, Oak, Peach, or Hickory.
2 Use a torch to fire them up until they just begin to light.
3 Place glass over the chips to snuff the fire and leave for a minute to soak the smoke while making the cocktail.
4 Mix cocktail ingredients together in a separate glass with ice and stir.
5 Flip smoked glass over, immediately add fresh ice and strain cocktail into smoked glass.
