3/4 oz Punt e Mes
1/2 oz Smoked Maple Syrup (*)
Stir with ice and strain into a rocks glass.
(*) 2 parts smoked salt simple syrup to 1 part maple syrup. Smoked salt simple syrup has 5 tsp of smoked salt per quart (~1 tsp per 6 oz simple syrup).
For my second drink at the Citizen Public House, I asked bartender Jess Li for the Burlington. When I inquired about the syrup, Jess flagged down bartender Chad Arnholt. Besides providing the recipe for the syrup, Chad gave a few details about the smoked sea salt he used. Chad prefers an imported sea salt that appears rather tacky and moist instead of dry crystals; in addition to the smoke notes, it also imparts flint and iodine flavors.
