  • 3 oz Angry Orchard Crisp Apple
  • 1.5 oz Aged Rum
  • 0.5 oz Toasted Marshmallow Syrup
  • Cinnamon Smoked Rocks Glass
  • Toasted Marshmallow Syrup:
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 8 large Marshmallows

How to Smoke Rocks Glass: Light a cinnamon stick on fire using a torch or gas burner on a stove. Blow out flames and allow to smolder. Place on a plate and cover with an upside down rocks glass and let sit for a minute or two. The glass should fill up with smoke.

Toasted Marshmallow Syrup: Combine sugar and water in a pot. Bring to a boil, make sure all sugar is dissolved, reduce heat and allow to simmer. Put marshmallows on a skewer and toast until slightly burnt on the stove burner or with a lighter. Add toasted marshmallows to the simmering syrup and stir until dissolved. Turn off heat and allow to cool. Strain the mixture with a fine strainer. Stir in vanilla extract. Store in the fridge.

First smoke the rocks glass. Once completed, add Angry Orchard Crisp Apple, Aged Rum and Toasted Marshmallow Syrup over ice. Stir and top with Toasted marshmallow on a stick.
