Lucky Smoke Cocktail Recipe
On a visit to The Spare Room in Hollywood, we sipped on a delicious cocktail co-created by Yael Vengroff and Eric Bugosh. It's a smoky twist on a traditional Old Fashioned. A pandan leaf is wrapped around the entirety of the glass, adding a nutty, buttery popcorn flavor to the cocktail with its scent and serving as an aromatic garnish with every sip. Aptly named Lucky Smoke here's the recipe so you can enjoy it at home.
1.5 oz Nikka Coffey Grain Whiskey
0.5 oz Smith & Cross Navy Strength Rum
0.25 oz banana liqueur
0.25 oz vanilla syrup
2 dashes Miracle Mile Coconut Pandan Bitters
In a rocks glass filled with ice, combine the ingredients and stir with a bar spoon. Wrap the pandan leaf around the glass and serve.
