Smoking Rosemary Whisky

Smoking a cocktail was once a trick limited to fancy bars with mixologists who like to put on a show now anyone can do it at home. You can smoke a simple glass of whiskey, a classic drink like an old fashioned, or any other cocktail you can think of. The result depends on what type of wood you’re burning and for how long. Smoking is used to add layers of savoury flavours to your drink.

Smoking rosemary leaves is definitely pleasant piney, citrus-y notes can enhance the cocktail experience and set the mood for total relaxation.
