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