Video: You've probably had some rich, flavorful smoked meat before, but now you can have the same flavour in your favourite cocktails. Also, when you pour and serve, it will look like a magic smoking elixir. The Cocktail Chemistry YouTube channel is back to make mixing cocktails almost look more fun than drinking them. This time around you'll learn how to properly "smoke" a cocktail. You'll need a sealable, clear bottle (he uses an empty whiskey bottle), some wood to smoke (apple, cherry or hickory), plus whatever ingredients and tools you need for your cocktail (he makes an old fashioned in this video). Begin burning part of your wood so it catches on fire. Once it's lit, extinguish the flame and put the bottle over the wood to capture the smoke. When the bottle is filled with smoke, seal it off. Now mix your cocktail, pour it into the smoke-filled bottle, and shake. After a few moments, pour your cocktail in a glass to be served and watch smoke pour out with it to settle in and around the glass.
