Smoked Old Fashioned Recipe

My favorite cocktail just got better! We’ve kicked up the Old Fashioned by adding smoke to make, well, the Smoked Old Fashioned.

Smoked Old Fashioned Cocktail Recipe


  • 2 fl oz straight rye or bourbon whiskey
  • 1 sugar cube
  • 2-3 dashes Angostura bitters
  • twist of orange peel
  • cherry


Place the sugar cube and orange peel in a small bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Insert the tube from the smoke infuser and fill the bowl with smoke. Cover with wrap, and let sit one minute. Repeat to add extra smokiness.

Place the sugar cube in a whiskey glass. Soak in the bitters and a little water. Muddle until sugar is dissolved. Add ice cubes to the glass. Stir with a spoon.

A smoke infuser is a fantastic tool for adding smoke, but not heat, to foods that we have a hard time smoking on a grill. It uses fine wood chips and a fan to blow cool smoke across items like ice cream or cocktails.

By placing food items in a bowl (orange peel, sugar cube), you can infuse the smoke by simply covering the bowl with plastic wrap and trapping the smoke inside.
