POUR all ingredients except tea into mixing glass. SMOKE tea using a chefs smoker and direct smoke into mixing glass. Cover to capture smoke for a minute or so. Remove cover, STIR with ice and strain into chilled glass.

Overdo the smoke and your cocktail will start to resemble a cigar. Too little and you may find a tad sweet.
