March 06, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

You don't want this smoke.... ok maybe you do!

Hey there! Today we're sharing a cocktail made with Vodka from our home state NJ! Bone Black Vodka is made in small batches at All Points West Distillery in the Ironbound district of Newark. We added actual smoke along with Fire Tincture from Scrappy Bitters. This drink has all of my favorite things, sage, thyme, lemon and smoke. We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
