When preparing your cocktail, smoke your tumbler with oak shavings or oak sticks, then pour 2 oz. in a mixing glass with ice and stir for 10 to 20 seconds until chilled. Strain over a giant ice cube in an Old Fashioned tumbler. Garnish with an orange twist.
To give your tumbler the lightest smoke flavour, first, rinse your glass with water. Then, chill your glass in the freezer. Prepare the cocktail, and right before you pour, take oak shaving or oak sticks and set it on fire, preferably with a blowtorch. Take your glass and place it over the flame to suffocate the fire.
Combine all ingredients in a pot over high heat. Heat until sugar is dissolved, then reduce heat and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and strain out cinnamon sticks. Keep refrigerated in a sealed container for up to six weeks.
