Barrel Aged Alaska Cocktail Infusion Recipe

Barrel aging is the process that gives whiskey, dark rum, and aged tequila their flavor, as was well as many types of wine. While the process usually involves a large barrel of around 55 gallons, you can replicate most of the process at home using a Mason jar and toasted oak chips. I like to barrel age various cocktails and this recipe is for the Alaska Cocktail.
