Smokey Sophistication: Crafting the Smoked Gin Old Fashioned with Death Gin

Welcome, fellow cocktail connoisseurs, to a journey of flavour exploration and laughter-inducing libations! Today, we’re taking a classic cocktail and giving it a Death Gin makeover. Get ready to elevate your spirits (both literally and figuratively) with our Smoked Gin Old Fashioned – a concoction that’s as smoky as it is sassy!

To concoct this smoky masterpiece, gather your ingredients:

  • 60ml Death Gin (smoked)
  • 10ml Simple Syrup
  • 2-3 dashes Aromatic Bitters
  • Orange Twist, for garnish
  • Maraschino Cherry, for garnish
  • Ice


  1. Get Smoky: Begin by preparing your smoked Death Gin. You can go all out with a fancy smoking gun or keep it simple by setting your gin on fire (safely, of course). Alternatively, you can beg, borrow, or steal (actually, don’t steal) pre-smoked gin from your favourite gin-loving friend.
  2. Chill Out: Fill a mixing glass with ice and pour in your smoked Death Gin, simple syrup, and aromatic bitters.
  3. Stir Things Up: Gently stir the concoction for about 30 seconds. Think of it as a gentle massage for your cocktail – it deserves a little TLC.
  4. Strain and Serve: Strain your chilled and slightly diluted mixture into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice. We’re all about that “on the rocks” life.
  5. Garnish, Baby, Garnish: Add a flourish of flair with an orange twist and a maraschino cherry. It’s like the cocktail version of putting on your favourite pair of shades – instant cool factor.

Why It’s a Must-Try

The Smoked Gin Old Fashioned isn’t just a drink; it’s an experience.
