How to build your Smoked Manhattan


  1. ***Best to perform this step under the hood fan in your kitchen. Using a small plate from your kitchen, a lighter or kitchen torch, light the wood chip on fire. Let it burn for as longs as you can before blowing out the flame and placing it on the plate. Cover the chip with glassware of choice, trapping the smoke in the glass.
  2. Empty the mini bottle of whiskey and add to the mixing jar
  3. Measure 0.5 oz. of vermouth syrup and add to the mixing jar
  4. Add about 1/2 cup of ice to the mixing glass
  5. Using your bar spoon, place the thick end to the bottom of the mixing glass
  6. Trace the inside of the opening of the mixing jar stirring the cocktail for 10-15 seconds
  7. Place the cover on the top of the jar leaving an opening enough to strain the cocktail into your glassware of choice (this beverage can be served on the rocks, over king cube, or straight up)
  8. Garnish with cherry on garnish skewer
