SMOKEHEAD

Smoking Cola

25ml Smokehead
Cola Reduction
Ice

Directions:


Slice orange peel and place it into your glass. Add the drops of bitter and pound the peel to release the flavours. Pour in the Smokehead and Cola reduction and top with ice. To add the finishing touches, light some woodchips and smoke a jug. Pour the smoke over the cocktail and enjoy.

Smoked Fashioned


Ingredients:


50ml Smokehead
4 dashes Angostura bitters
1 tsp caster sugar or 2 sugar cubes
Chiselled ice
Dark chocolate to garnish

Directions:


Put the sugar in your glass and wet it down with bitters. Crush all that together with whatever blunt instrument is handy, then rotate your glass so the sugar and bitters give it a lining. Add in some hefty ice cubes then pour over your whisky. Top it all off with the dark chocolate.

Smoked Ginger


Ingredients:


50ml Smokehead High Voltage
200ml ginger beer
25ml fresh lemon juice
Crushed root ginger
Squeezed lemon and ginger to garnish

Directions:


Chop about 2-3cm off your ginger root and peel it. Slice it finely, grate it roughly, or mash the living daylights out if out. Your call. Pour the ginger in the bottom of the glass, add a generous measure of High Voltage and chiseled chunks of ice. Then pour over some decent ginger beer. Add a slice of lemon and garnish with a sliver of ginger

Edinburgh Gin and Smokehead are both available online.
