This cocktail uses smoked ice cubes and a smoked cocktail glass to lend the drink its unique flavour. More information on this technique can be found in my guide to smoked and barbecued cocktails which includes more recipes and smoking tips.

Small batch, citrus-heavy gin forms the base of this classic cocktail, with plenty of fresh lime wedges to emphasise the fruity botanicals in the spirit. A clean, natural tonic water, with its own touch of botanicals, will bloom the citrus flavours of the gin, while the smoked components match the bitter note of both the tonic and the gin.

Ingredients

Metric

Imperial

1
Squeeze the juice from two wedges per glass, then fill the glasses with the smoked ice cubes and the rest of the lime wedges
