Instructions To Using A Cocktail Smoking Gun:

If you haven’t used a cocktail smoking kit, here are the steps to getting it set up.

  1. On a flat surface, place the glass stand.
  2. Place a wood pellet into the stand and light the pellet (for new pellets, allow 30 seconds to burn).
  3. Acting quickly, blow out the wood and place the carafe upside down on top of the glass stand.
  4. While the smoke collects, to the side, prepare the cocktail ingredients.
  5. After one minute has passed by collecting smoke, remove the carafe and use the silicone stopper.
  6. When the cocktail is prepared, remove the silicone stopper and cocktail into the carafe.
  7. Replacing the silicone stopper to the carafe, swirl the cocktail for 30 seconds to one minute (the longer you swirl, the smokier the infusion).
  8. Remove the silicone stopper to pour and relish in your smoked cocktails!
