Optimist — Smokey — Non-Alcoholic Distilled Spirit
Optimist Botanicals are brought to you from California, its portfolio of spirits inspired by the state's natural treasures. SMOKEY was inspired by trips out of LA to the High Desert, reminiscent of crackling fires after the sun sets across the vast desert sky—a spiced blend with charred wood, floral and bitter notes.
We also love the solid feeling of these glass bottles and tops.
HOW TO ENJOY
We love the complexity of Optimist Smokey and prefer to drink it slowly over a very large ice cube with a splash of lime juice and perhaps a little soda. It makes for an interesting nightcap after a long day. It reminds us of a mezcal.
The folks at Optimist suggest mixing one part Smokey with two parts tonic or sparkling water over ice, and a garnish of pink peppercorns, jalapeno slice, or orange peel.
