To make an old fashioned cocktail smoker, you first need to add sugar and orange bitters to a glass. Dissolve the sugar and then add whiskey to the glass. Give a good mix.

Then use a food smoking machine to add smoke to your drink. If you don’t have such a machine, using a few drops of liquid smoke will do the trick. Finally, serve your drink in a large whiskey glass with ice cubes and enjoy.

Best cocktail smokers for my smoke bitters recipe?

It’s natural to search for the best smoker for an old fashioned drink. If you are also looking for the same, here are two cocktail smokers that I recommend.

One option is the lid, which can be easily placed on the top of the drink and light. It is the easiest of the two versions because it does not require holding the lid while smoking the drink.

The second option is creating smoke via a smoking gun and a disk. A tube is attached to the gun, which you can set on the top. While it’s user-friendly, the drink must be held in a place, making the process less convenient.

Your first option is Scrappy’s Bitter, which has the highest quality bitters. So when you add it to your drink, it won’t ruin the quality of your drink for quantity. Also, it does not have chemicals, artificial flavoring, or dyes.

You can use any kind of wood to add smoke flavor to your cocktail. But the best and most popular ones are cherry, oak, and hickory.

Should I flame an orange peel before adding it to the drink? 

If you add a flaming orange peel to your old smoked whiskey fashioned, it will give a smokey and burnt flavor to your drink. In addition, it helps in releasing natural oils present in the orange peel.
