Preparation

When ready to cook, start your Traeger according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to the Smoke setting (set to Super Smoke if using a WiFIRE-enabled grill).

To make Smoked Blackberry Simple Syrup: Place blackberries on a grill mat and smoke for 15-20 minutes.

Combine water and sugar in a small sauce pan and warm over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and place 2/3 of blackberries in the simple syrup and mascerate.

Strain through a fine mesh strainer and store for up to 14 days.

To make the cocktail: Muddle 4-5 blackberries in a cocktail shaker. Add vodka, alpine preserve, lemon and smoked blackberry syrup. Add ice and shake vigorously. Double strain into an old fashioned glass.

Garnish with smoked black berry and lemon twist. Enjoy!
