I just received the sexiest, stylish, and most fun cocktail smoking cloche for my new apartment! Thank you to Crafthouse by Fortessa for this incredible device because now smoking cocktails has never been easier and more fun to do. This cloche comes complete with a smoking gun, the terminal, a nice wooden stand and beautiful glass closure. It’s so easy to use, and great for apartments which at first I was worried about, but it works great in my wine and spirits studio!

The smell is also amazing too, your home will smell like a nice outdoor fire and it’s so comforting and exciting to have those beautiful aromas in your cocktail and home. The smoke sits so well with the cocktails and below I have three great recipes for you to try. This cloche makes an ideal gift and with the holidays coming up it’s literally the perfect price at $179.95.

Cheers to the holidays and all the smoked cocktails you can and hopefully will make! Always remember eat what you like and drink what you love. Please pair responsibly.

Smoked Grapefruit Rosemary Paloma- by Sara Lehman 

2oz Silver Tequila

1/2oz Lime Juice (fresh is best)

1/2oz Wood Stove Kitchen Grapefruit Rosemary Mixer

3oz Grapefruit Soda

Garnish: Twang Beer Salt Grapefruit Salt

  1. I like to build this one in a glass, so start by rimming the glass with lime, and rimming it in salt.
  2. Take your tequila, lime juice, and grapefruit rosemary mixer and add to the glass.
  3. Add ice, and stir until chilled.
  4. Top with grapefruit soda, and add to smoking cloche.
  5. Smoke for about a minute, then remove.
  6. Enjoy the smoked grapefruit flavors, the hints of rosemary, and deliciousness that is this cocktail!
