Drink bourbon, plant trees! Whiskey lovers can rejoice because now all that imbibing is helping out the planet. For the month of September, all three Smoke Shop BBQ locations — Kendall Square, Seaport and Assembly Row — is shaking up the Good Omens cocktail with Angel’s Envy bourbon, concord grape molasses, aromatic bitters, and lemon oil and is garnished with candied “angel’s wings” made out of sugared grapes. All you need to do next is snap a photo of your sipper and post it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #ToastTheTrees. The Angel’s Envy team will plant an oak tree next spring for every photo posted of an Angel’s Envy cocktail.
You might be wondering why oak tress? Well, no oak trees = no whiskey. That smooth spirit you love so much is required (by law!) to be aged in oak barrels — it gives the liquor it’s signature caramel color and velvety flavor. Stop by any Smoke Shop outpost daily between 11:00am and 11:00pm before the month is up.
