Cinnamon Smoked Moonlight

Cinnamon Smoked Moonlight


  • 1.5oz Whiskey (We used Bulleit bourbon)
  • A few dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1 teaspoon sugar (optional)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Orange peel


Start off by burning your cinnamon stick. Get a flame and get your cinnamon stick burning a bit. It won’t burst into flames so don’t be afraid. Once it’s burning a little remove the flame and it should be smoking a bit. Place your smoking cinnamon stick on a heat-safe plate and place your cocktail glass over it. This allows the smoke to swirl around and coat your glass.

While your smoke swirls around, add your sugar (to taste), Angostura bitters and whiskey to your cocktail mixing glass. Mix to get the sugar to dissolve a bit. Add ice and stir to chill your drink. Get your glass and rub an orange peel (peel with this) along the rim and throw into your glass. Strain and pour your cocktail into your glass. Add a cinnamon stick to the mix as a garnish if you’d like. Sip and enjoy!
