Arbella’s Chicago Fire Extinguisher
Created by head bartender Eric Trousdale and named after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, Arbella’s Chicago Fire Extinguisher is served in a globe-shaped bottle that is reminiscent of saline-solution filled bottles that were thrown into fires to keep the flames from spreading. The cocktail, made from Scotch, Luxardo Amaro Abano, and smoked Angostura Bitters is mixed in the glass globe and then pumped with smoke from smoldering wine-barrel wood chips, creating a cloud of smoke contained inside the cork-topped bottle. The cocktail is presented to the guest by the server and then uncorked and poured over an oversized cube of crystal clear ice made from Arbella’s in-house Clinebell ice machine with the smoke pouring out and into the glass.
