Smoking Ingredients for Cocktails

I just bought a stove top smoker. It's a Nordic Ware Kettle Smoker that works brilliantly on the stovetop. Tonight I made some smoked fresh pineapple that I turned into a syrup for cocktails. It's been delicious with virtually everything I've tried it with. I also smoked up some poblano chiles and carrots to toy with a smoky Bloody Mary variant. Any other genius ideas? I think smoked peaches and nectarines are next...

While I didn't use it in cocktails, this was before my adventure into the cocktail world started, I smoked some oranges a few years ago. I just cut them in half and stuck them in the smoker cut side up as an experiment because it was still smoking nicely after I did some chocolate. I used the juice to make a sliceable smoked orange curd and candied the zest. I was happy with the results. I've wondered a few times what a twist of smoked orange zest would do as a garnish and the juice has to work somewhere... I'm just not sure where. I'll have to smoke some more and play around.

It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

WE use to smoke the tomatoes and peppers for our bloody mary juice - it worked a treat. Try the pinepple with the chillis in a variant of the margarita...

We use the smoking gun to fill shakers preloaded with ice, seal them, and store them in the freezer a few times per night for our hickory-smoked margarita . Assemble the ingredients, pull the shaker out and shake ingredients in the smoked ice. Guests love it.
