There are many types of cocktail smokers, but the basic idea behind them is simple: Fire is used to infuse your drink with smoke, usually after you put it under a dome or into a box filled with wood chips or sawdust. A simple whiskey drink, a traditional cocktail, or any other cocktail you can imagine are all acceptable options for smoking. Depending on the wood you’re burning, the resulting flavor can range from savory to smoky, but it always makes for a delicious drink.

TIPS ON HOW TO SMOKE YOUR DRINKS AND COCKTAILS
You can smoke liquid ingredients like tomato juice or simple syrup for Mint Juleps by filling a small mason jar two-thirds full, adding a very small amount of smoke, sealing it, and shaking it up. If you want to taste it, open it when the smoke has dissipated. The amount of smoke can be increased as necessary. Before using the liquid, check the smoke to see if it needs more boost. Store the liquid in the same way you would normally.
Wood Infused With Oils Or Bourbon
You can also soak wood in aromatic oils or bourbon to enhance its flavor. Your favorite smoker will enjoy using used bourbon barrels as a wood.
When combined with peated whisky, cedar smoke adds a cigar box scent to scotch cocktails. To smoke a Penicillin or a Rob Roy with cedar, try using a Rob Roy or Rob Roy.
