I believe a smoked flavor to be an aquifer taste. With that being said it’s most likely to drop well with fat in ligh I’d or solid form (fish, cream..etc).

I’m thinking this could make a pretty interesting variation on an old fashioned or Manhattan! A little smokey essence sounds terrific!

I’m thinking this could make a pretty interesting variation on an old fashioned or Manhattan! A little smokey essence sounds terrific! I’m thinking of bourbon and cherry. Like the aromatic warmth of pipe tobacco.

I have a great Spicy Paloma that I might smoke with some cherry wood, but with fall hitting and football back on maybe a smoked old fashion.

A smoked peach bourbon smash is wonderful. Another fun trick is to smoke the water you use to make ice cubes and then just toss one into your old fashioned or bourbon. So good, and easier (but as impressive) as clear ice.
