Just as in the Cubed Old Fashioned and the old fashioned simple syrup therein, making your own ingredients takes your cocktails to the next level of flavor. In the Gunpowder and Smoke, a liqueur created using gunpowder tea infused cognac mixed with sugar provides a backbone to which all the other ingredients attach and compliment. For the smoke: a bit of flamed Scotch to top it off!
1. Mix first four ingredients with cappuccino mixer or dry shake.
2. Add ice and shake.
3. Strain into a cocktail glass.
4. Flame scotch over glass using an olive oil mister and serve.
