What's this?

Raise your wood-fired spirits with this cocktail. Pick your whiskey of choice, stir in some grilled lemon juice for enhanced depth of flavor and give it a smoky finish with just the right touch of smoked simple syrup for a Traeger take on a classic Whiskey Sour.

Ingredients

  • 1 Whole lemon, halved

  • 1 Whole lemon, thinly sliced

  • 2 Ounce Ransom Whiskey

  • 3/4 Ounce Traeger Smoked Simple Syrup

  • 3/4 Ounce Grilled Lemon Juice

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set grill temperature to High and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 2

    For the grilled lemon juice, slice 1 of the lemons in half and place on the grill. For the garnish, take other lemon and slice lemon wheels 1/4" inch thick and place on grill.
  • 3

    Cook for 15 minutes or until the lemons have grill marks on one side. Set the lemon wheels aside. Juice the halved lemon (3/4 oz is about the amount of a half full alcoholic shot glass).
  • 4

    Combine all ingredients in a shaker glass with ice and shake vigorously. Fine strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with a grilled lemon wheel. Enjoy!
