Burnt Cedar or Sandalwood
Smoking cedar or sandalwood infuses any cocktail with a barbeque flavor and a soft, subtle, woodsy bouquet. Instead of dropping the flaming chips directly into a drink, light a pile of wood, then extinguish it with a glass. That way, you imbue the glass with a deliciously smoky flavor in preparation for a cocktail. Try using a sandalwood-smoked glass for a Negroni or a cedar-smoked glass for a Manhattan.
How to Do It: Create a small pile of wood chips on a plate or fire-proof surface, then light the pile on fire. Smother the burning pile with a cocktail glass and allow the glass to fill with smoke as you prepare your cocktail. When the cocktail is ready, lift the cocktail glass and pour the drink into it.
