– 3.75 oz. Ginger Ale
– 2 dashes Angostura aromatic bitters
– 1 oz. Whiskey
– Smoke + Spice Rimmer Garnish
– Bourbon Barrel Wood Chip
Chill Rocks Glass by placing in fridge or freezer or by filling with ice water and setting aside for 5 minutes (optional). Light the Bourbon Barrel Wood Chip, and place into the shaker. Screw cap back on to extinguish the flame. While the Mason Shaker is filling with smoke, remove Rocks Glass from freezer or empty water. Place the Smoke + Spice Rimmer onto a plate and roll the rim of the Rocks Glass into the spice blend. Uncap the Mason Shaker and place the rimmed Rocks Glass on top of the vent—releasing the smoky aromas into the glass. Flip Rocks Glass back over and add measured amount of ginger ale (half can). Then, float Angostura bitters on top. Add ice to Rocks Glass (and whiskey, if desired) and garnish with wood chip.
