If there’s smoke... you should drink it? Cocktail Chemistry shows how you can make an ice ball full of smoke for your cocktails that once you crack open, will unleash the smoke monster. The effect is really cool, like the spirit gods are anointing your drink as worthy.
Maybe I’m old fashioned, but why all the silly, over the top cocktail “presentations”? Can’t we simply just drink booze and not have to hipster it up in order to feel better about it? This abomination would cost $30 in a bar, and I’d be three drinks in before it was ever served to the scarf wearing douche that ordered it. Not everything needs to be an “art form” folks...Especially the simple pleasure of having a drink.
