No one said being a mixologist was easy. It takes a lot of dedication and training…or the online equivalent: watching YouTube videos and being like, “I could totally do that.”
We’ve featured videos from the YouTube channel Cocktail Chemistry before – things like serving drinks inside of a ball of ice or making one of those cool flaming orange peels. They always have a way of taking pretty complicated techniques and making them look simple. Oh, you want me to fill an ice cube with smoke? My buddies and I hotboxed a Honda Accord back in high school; how hard can it be??
The resulting “smoke bomb” cocktail is definitely visually stunning: it’s like a smoke machine for your drink. And if there’s one thing that 1980’s music videos have taught us, it’s that smoke machines make everything cooler.
