As head bartender at Arbella in Chicago, Eric Trousdale truly knows how to bring the heat. For this National Cocktail Day, Bernzomatic, a leader in fueled flame, joins forces with mixologist Trousdale to create the hottest and most on-trend smoked cocktail drinks. Smoking cocktails to capture layers of flavor is a growing culinary trend. His torch-wielding cocktail recipes include the Chicago Fire Extinguisher, an Arbella favorite, and the Laguna Salada, named after a famous dried lake in the Mexican dessert.

Impress your friends with one, or both, of Trousdale’s smoked cocktails!
