For the Smoked Bourbon

Preheat pellet grill to 180° or follow manufacturer’s instructions to prepare a pellet smoker tube (sold separately), for cold smoking.

Pour 1 cup bourbon into a tempered glass measuring cup; place in a cast-iron skillet. Place skillet on grill rack; arrange ice around cup. Smoke bourbon 4560 minutes, draining water and adding more ice every 15 minutes.

Note: Smoking bourbon requires keeping it cool with ice so only a little whiskey is lost to evaporation.

For the Old Fashioned

Place sugar cube in an old-fashioned glass. Dash cube with bitters and water; muddle until sugar cube is crushed and nearly dissolved. Add ice and bourbon. Garnish old fashioned with orange peel and cocktail cherry.
