How Do I Smoke Infuse a Drink or Cocktail, you might ask? Here is the 411 on how to infuse your drinks with smoke.
How does smoke infusion work on drinks?
Smoke infusion is a process of flavoring a liquid by exposing it to smoke from burning herbs, spices, or wood. This can be done with a variety of methods, but the most common is to use a gravity hookah.
To smoke infuse a drink, you will need a container and a bowl. The container can be anything that can hold liquid and has a small hole in the bottom. A 2-liter soda bottle works well. The bowl can be anything that will fit over the hole in the bottom of the container. A small cup or bowl works well. Fill the container with the liquid you want to infuse. Place the bowl over the hole in the bottom. Place your weed in the bowl and light it. As the weed burns, the smoke will be drawn down into the liquid. Infuse for as long as desired, then remove the bowl and drink the infused liquid.

Is smoke infusion safe?
While smoke infusion is generally safe, there are some risks to be aware of. When you expose a liquid to smoke, it can absorb harmful chemicals from the smoke.
These chemicals can include toxins and carcinogens. It is important to use high-quality herbs and spices when infusing and to not over-infuse the liquid. If you are concerned about the safety of smoke infusion, you can infuse the liquid with a non-smokable herb such as rosemary or basil.
