The Hugh Hefner Smoked Scotch Cocktail

In case you’re one of those guys who really, really love the smell of smoke, I’m pretty sure you’ll like this cocktail, a new, sexy twist on the classic Rusty Nail Cocktail, inspired by the Playboy legend, Hugh Hefner. Scotch and whiskey taste even better with the smoke from a couple of fine cigars – something that exquisite gentlemen love to enjoy now and then.

That’s how this cocktail was born, mixing smoke with whiskey for a smoke variation of the Rusty Nail Cocktail which sounds, looks and probably tastes incredible.  Here’s what you need to do it yourself:

1 1/2 oz. J&B (or comparable) blended scotch whiskey
1/2 oz. Drambuie honey liqueur
Soda water
Sprig fresh rosemary
Liquid Smoke in atomizer

You’ll need to muddle fresh rosemary and a touch of Drambuie in the bottom of an old fashioned glass, then fill it with ice. Next you’ll have to add Scortch, add the rest of Drambuie, and top the whole thing with soda water. And now the twist: mist with three spritzes of atomized liquid smoke, stir once and garnish with rosemary. Put it in your mouth, and enjoy.
