- 2 oz. The Black Grouse
- .25 oz. Rosemary Syrup
- .5 oz. Green Chartreuse
- 1 sprig smoked rosemary
This cocktail recipe is pretty simple. It has only a few ingredients but it includes one very very clever idea – smoked rosemary. Smoked rosemary is exactly what it sounds like, you light a dry sprig of rosemary, blow it out, and put the smoke into the glass itself.
Then, you mix in the other ingredients listed above in a mixing glass and strain it into the smoked glass.
I like the choice of Black Grouse because the smokiness of Black Grouse is accentuated by the rosemary smoke. And while I find that I can enjoy Black Grouse neat but sometimes it’s nice to make something special with it.
