WEST END: Blue Duck Tavern Unveils New Fall Cocktails
|Up in Smoke|
Three new smoked libations, created in collaboration with One Eight Distilling for the Up In Smoke series are being introduced this month. Cocktails are poured into glasses that has been smoked using pecan, cedar, or almond wood to infuse the smoky flavor and include the following: the Sazerac with Rock Creek rye and pecan smoke; the Martinez featuring Untitled No. 2 gin and apple smoke as well as the Manhattan with Rock Creek bourbon and cedar smoke. These exclusive cocktails are priced at $18.
“Smoke is a true characteristic of fall,” says Park Hyatt Washington, D.C. Lead Bartender Cole Burger. “With that in mind, we partnered with One Eight Distilling to create smoke-infused versions of three classic libations: the Martinez, the Manhattan, and Sazerac. We selected three types of wood chips: pecan, cedar and almond, which are placed on a board and set on fire. The smoke from the fire engulfs the glass before the spirits are poured. The cocktails aren’t visibly smoky but the smell is there, and it is the first sense activated before you take the first sip.”
