What cocktail is appropriate for 10 a.m. consumption? The Smoky Deal, of course.
Hot From The Kettle recently visited Chakra in Paramus, where sommelier and general manager Evelyn Hsu Ciszak shook up an absurdly decadent and sinfully delicious cocktail - The Smoky Deal.
Evelyn learned the technique behind this unique cocktail from mixologists at East Village bar, PDT. Essentially , the cocktail is a bastardized, baconized Old Fashioned.
How is it baconized? Through a method called "fat washing," wherein bourbon is infused with bacon drippings. Curious? Watch the video.
Evelyn was kind enough to share her recipe with us. Cheers!
The Smoky Deal
