Culinary cocktails: Smokey Old Tom

The Rusty Spoon

by

comment

House-made rosemary and lemon tinctures are the secret weapon in the Rusty Spoon's Smokey Old Tom. The drink is built by first misting the inside of a coupe with rosemary tincture, then giving it a rinse of Laphroaig Scotch whisky. Full-bodied Old Tom gin, Dolin Blanc vermouth and a fresh honey syrup made by the bartenders are mixed and poured into the prepared glass, and then a light spritz of lemon tincture across the top adds piquant aromatics to the well-balanced whole.
