Happy Birthday, Rachel!

In honor of Rachel's upcoming birthday, we'll be making

2 oz bourbon
1/4 oz rye whiskey simple syrup
Peychaud's bitters

Over ice, stir together bourbon, simple syrup, and bitters.

Fill a stoppered decanter (or another sealable container, like a lidded pitcher or jar) with fresh hickory smoke from a handheld food smoker (like PolyScience's Smoking Gun). Strain in the cocktail, seal the decanter, and swirl for one minute. Pour the drink out over ice; serve.

NB: If you don't have fresh hickory smoke on hand, substitute a peaty Scotch for the bourbon.
