Whiskey smoked syrup adds another layer of depth to this classic margarita from The Coastal Table.
Raw sugar that been smoked over wood from old whiskey barrels adds just the right amount of smoke and sweetness to the finished sugar. It’s perfect as a rub, used in place of brown sugar in sauces, and as the base for the most heavenly simple syrup.
