Here’s the 4th installment in the Liquor Plus Cocktail Series presented by Brian Chapman of My Teacher Drinks fame!
As an Island owned and operated business, Liquor Plus takes pride in showcasing our local Island producers.
For the Bee Smoker you’ll need:
- 45 ml Shelter Point Smoke Point Whiskey
- 30 ml Wayward Krupnik Spiced Honey Liquor
- 1 barspoon maple syrup
- 3 dashes Rootside Orange Bitters
- 2 dashes Rootside Rootbeer Bitters
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail mixing glass, add ice and stir until chilled, mixed and diluted (approx 12-14 seconds). Strain into large rocks glass with clear king cube ice.
Peel an orange swath over the glass, rub oils on side of glass and create a orange peel ‘boat’, rest on top of drink. Pour a small amount of whisky into orange peel, light on fire and grate cinnamon over fire. Drop orange peel into drink to extinguish flame. Enjoy!
Message from the teacher:
“This spicy/smoky Old-Fashioned style cocktail is perfect for fall. With Shelter Point’s Smoke Point Whiskey as the anchor, supported by some warming fall spices in Wayward’s Krupnik Spiced Honey Liquor, this cocktail finishes boozy but approachable, softened with some maple syrup and rounded out with some Rootbeer Bitters and Orange Bitters by Rootside bitters. —Brian Chapman
