RECIPE: Macomb Smokeshow

  • 3 oz gin
  • 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz smoked rosemary trash cordial (see below)

Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake until well chilled.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  (For a smokier flavor, smoke your glass – instructions below)

Smoked Rosemary Trash Cordial

  • 1 cup leftover white wine
  • 2 limes (juice, pulp, and peel) or equivalent citrus fruit
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large dried Rosemary sprig

Bring wine and citrus juice and pieces to boil over low heat.  Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.  Strain fruit from syrup, return to low heat.  Add sugar and stir until dissolved.  Hold dry rosemary over pot, and light on fire with a barbecue lighter. Allow to smolder briefly then add to pot and turn off heat.  Allow syrup to cool then strain again.

Smoking a Cocktail Glass

Ignite 1 rosemary sprig on top of a heatproof plate, carefully allow it to burn slightly then extinguish flames. Immediately invert a glass on the plate covering the rosemary and allow it to smolder. (via puremixology.com)

Episode 006 – Macomb Smokeshow

Episode Notes

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and where there’s fire, there’s the McDonald siblings. In this episode, Nick and Cait have turned their eyes to stories of supernatural smoke and fire this week, as we visit a fiery poltergeist (feuergeist?) in Illinois and a witch’s tree in North Carolina that refused to burn down. All this, plus smokey beverages and feet discussions!
