Bahama Bob’s Smokey Papa's Pilar Old Fashioned

     Here is an idea for a wonderful way to enjoy a cocktail as the weather begins to cool a bit and we light the fireplaces and enjoy out evenings with this idea for a different kind of Old Fashioned.  This has a very unique taste and aroma and I know I found it to be just perfect to sit and sip in the evening.

Bahama Bob’s Smokey Papa's Pilar Old Fashioned

  • 2 oz. Pilar Dark Rum
  • 1/4 oz. Simple Syrup
  • 4 dashes Angostura  Bitters
  • Apple Wood Chip
  • Mesquite Wood Chip

Take an old Fashioned glass and put ice in it and the rum, simple syrup and bitters in and stir until mixed,  Wit a torch of some sort, light a apple chip on fire until it starts to smoke.  Hold your shaker tin inverted over the smoking chip until the smoke rolls out around the bottom.  Place it inverted over the old fashioned glass and turn it over and shake very gently.  Remove the old fashioned from the shaker and top up with ice.  Repeat the smoke filling of the shaker tin and set it over the glass.  Remove the tin as you serve it and the smoke will remain in the glass giving you a unique aroma and taste.
