Smoked Fireball Sour

Winter might be done but these Spring nights still have a nip in the air and over the weekend we were met with some seriously chilly spring rain. Never one to shy away from weather, the trip went ahead, safe in the knowledge that we had the perfect fireside beverage to warm us up around the fire.

You'll Need

  • Slice of fresh ginger

  • 50ml Fireball Cinnamon Whisky (or to taste)

  • 25ml lemon juice

  • One swig of Maple syrup (you can use honey but we thought we would stick with a bit of a Canadian theme as we were using Fireball)

  • Angostura Bitters to taste

  • Charred Smoked Lemon to serve

  • Hot water from the billy


  • Throw the billy on the fire

  • Char some lemon slices, do this nice and slow so they get smokey and kind of caramelise it adds an incredible flavour to this sour hot toddy

  • Bung the ginger, lemon juice, maple syrup, whisky and bitters in your vessel of choice

  • Pour over desired amount of hot water or serve it neat for a cold whisky sour (Weather dependant)

  • Top with a couple of slices of smoky charred lemon to serve

Enjoy with mates and doggo side kick by the fire.
