spiced cider brew cocktail


  • 4 lemons, to yield 1 cup grilled lemon juice

  • 1 Bottle (750ml) bottle rye whiskey

  • 1 Quart fresh apple cider

  • 1 Cup Your Favorite Smoked Simple Syrup

  • 3 Ounce Fernet-Branca

  • 1 Teaspoon Angostura bitters

  • cinnamon sticks

  • orange peel twists, for garnish

  • dry ice, optional




When ready to cook, set Z Grill temperature to 500℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.


For the grilled lemon juice: Slice the lemons in half and place cut side down directly on the grill grate. Cook until they have grill marks and have started to caramelize, about 20 minutes. Juice, strain and cool.


In a punch bowl or large container, combine all ingredients except the orange peel twists and dry ice. Chill for 1 to 4 hours, covered, in the refrigerator.


Serve with blocks of dry ice and garnish with orange peel twist. Enjoy!
