Smoked Bourbon Old Fashioned

By: TraegerDaddy

Recipe

  • 2 parts TX Bourbon
  • 0.25 parts Smoked Simple Syrup
  • Handful of Wood Shavings (we use wood from used TX Bourbon barrel staves)
  • 2 dashes of Angostura Bitters

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Use a torch to fire them up until they just begin to light.
  • Place glass over the chips to snuff the fire and leave for a minute to soak the smoke while making the cocktail.
  • Mix cocktail ingredients together in a separate glass with ice and stir.
  • Flip smoked glass over, immediately add fresh ice and strain cocktail into smoked glass.
