Spooky, Smoky Cocktails For Halloween (I Need A Smoker)

1 oz Mezcal
1 oz Applejack
½ oz Benedictine
1 tbsp Maple syrup

Combine all ingredients in a rocks glass over one large ice cube. Stir until well chilled.
Garnish with an aromatic (cinnamon, thyme, rosemary, star anise are good options) and place the drink inside the smoking box. Fill the box with smoke according to package instructions. Let the cocktail sit in the smoke-filled box for a few moments, then open and drink immediately.

I cheat, and just smoke wood chips!

- In one glass, I muddle and mix, then set aside.

- Then, placing (preferred species) wood chips on a hunk of wood, hit them with a kitchen torch to smoke.

- Hold a second cocktail glass upside down over the smoking chips to trap the smoke

- Flip glass number two over; add ice and the cocktail from glass number one

Definitely not an everyday activity, but it is absolutely a nice change of pace in the fall.
