The inspiration behind this cocktail are 2 personal favorites of mine - the Old Fashioned and Cold Brew. The name “Smokey Joe” is a combination of smoking the glass for an added flavor to the cocktail, and the Mr Black coffee Liqueur - or “joe” - for an extra kick. Better yet, my go-to bar in college was called Smokey Joe’s, which brings a feeling of nostalgia to the drink!
