the oakledge cocktail

1 oz Stonecutter Spirits Heritage Cask whiskey

½ oz lemon juice

½ oz Grand Marnier

½ oz Runamok Cardamom Infused Maple Syrup

3 dashes Regans orange bitters 

Citizen Cider Tree Tapper, to top

 

Combine all ingredients except Citizen Cider Tree Tapper into a shaker with ice. Shake until shaker is frosted, then double strain over a large square ice cube in an old fashioned glass. Top with Citizen Cider Tree Tapper and garnish with a smoked maple orange.

Smoked Maple Orange

Slice an orange into slices about an eighth of an inch thick. Then brush them with Runamok cardamom maple syrup. For wood chips, use oak chips soaked in Citizen Cider Tree Tapper. Once the smoker is up to temp at the lowest setting, smoke until slightly charred, but not burnt. Afterwards, dehydrate the slices until void of almost all moisture.
