Who doesn’t love a special cocktail during the holidays? We certainly do and this one is going to be made well through the New Year. It uses Smoked Simple Syrup made by Traeger, which is available at most Ace Hardware stores as well as online. Cheers!
Tennessee Smoked & Spiked Lemonade
Yield: 3-4 servings
6 lemons, cut in half
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cup Traeger Smoked Syrup
1/3 cup vodka
Preheat the smoker to 500 degrees. Meanwhile, dip the cut sides of each lemon half in the sugar. Whisk together the water, smoked syrup and vodka and set aside. Smoke the lemons with the cut side up for 15 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then squeeze the juice into the syrup mixture. Whisk to combine and serve over ice.
