III Forks has just unveiled two new "Up In Smoke" cocktails, offered now through the end of April. Using a smoking gun, bartenders will add cherrywood infused smoke to a Smoked Cherry Negroni, and applewood infused smoke to an Applewood Smoked Old Fashioned. The smoke is added to the glass and trapped with the glass lid. The libations will arrive with the glass lid still closed, and once delivered, the lid will be slowly lifted.
