You need a smoke infuser to make this drink. We used Breville’s Smoking Gun. Follow the instructions for use that come with the infuser.


1 sugar cube

Twist of orange peel

Maraschino cherry

3 dashes Angostura bitters

1 teaspoon water

2 ounces Sazerac straight rye or bourbon


Place the sugar cube, orange peel and cherry in a rocks glass. Use the smoking gun to add smoke to the glass, then cover with a larger glass or glass pitcher. Repeat to add extra smokiness to the garnishes.

Muddle the sugar with the bitters and water. Fill the glass with large ice cubes, add the bourbon and lightly stir to combine. Drop in the smoked garnishes. Smoke the glass for a third time for 2 minutes to fully infuse the smoky flavor and make for a flashy presentation.
