A dry gin Martini crossed with Audrey Saunders' Dreamy Dorini Smoking Martini, with an assist from Kindred Cocktails user Jennx's Mezcal Martini. Name's a tip of the hat to the Obituary Cocktail.
From other users
  • If you like smoke and like martinis, you'll like this. Actually the smoke is gentler than expected, and a bit sour/salty (effectively serving as the martini's "olive"). — ☆☆☆☆
  • Nice smoke element — ☆☆☆☆
  • This is a fairly clean tasting cocktail. I forgot to add the scotch, but I keep some Laphroaig in a mister and gave it a couple nice sprays to finish it off. — ☆☆☆

Nice! This has all my

Nice! This has all my favorite things. I didn't have a Laphroaig like Scotch. Used Aberlour A'Bunadh which is all carmel, no smoke, but that tasted really good too.

Another good one, Rafa.

Another good one, Rafa. Ilegal is about the best mezcal I can get here. It's not bad by any means, but I bet the drink is spectacular with a really good one.
