Smoked Black Manhattan

Makes 2 drinks

4 ounces rye whiskey

2 ounces Amaro Averna

4 dashes Angostura bitters

Equipment: Smoking gun, cherry wood chips, cloche

Glass: Rocks glass

Garnish: 4 Luxardo cherries

In a shaker, combine 10 ice cubes, rye, Averna, and bitters. Stir and strain into a chilled rocks glass filled with a couple of ice cubes. Garnish with cherries. Place the cocktail under a cloche and use a smoking gun fueled by the wood chips to create a dense smoke under the cloche. Let the cocktail smoke for 5–10 seconds before removing the cloche. The cold drink and glass will allow the cold smoke to linger on the liquid, making for a great presentation.
