Created by Tony Hoff of Sassafras (Los Angeles, CA)

  • 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.
