The Bourbon BBQ

Bourbon BBQ

This cocktail is delicious on its own. However if you have a smoking gun at your disposal, this is another drink well served by a 5-7 second smoke bath.


Equipment: muddler, shaker, strainer, large ice cube or sphere, old fashioned glass

2 oz bourbon

1 oz unfiltered apple juice

1 tsp demerara sugar

2 dashes angostura bitters

Smoked apple slice – diced

Fresh ground cinnamon for garnish

Twist of orange for garnish


Place large ice cube in old fashioned glass. In shaker tin, muddle apple, bitters and sugars. Add bourbon, apple juice and ice and gently shake for 15 seconds. Strain over large ice cube and garnish with freshly ground cinnamon and a twist of orange. Cheers!
