Nitrous Oaked Manhattan Infusion Recipe

Barrel aging is the process that gives bourbon and whiskey their unique flavors. Many people are experimenting with barrel aging prepared cocktails and nitrous oaking is a take on that process utilizing the whipping siphon. The high pressures draw out the caramel flavors from the toasted oak chips and infuse them into the liquid. If you can't find toasted oak chips, you can buy normal food-safe oak chips and toast them with a torch or under a broiler until lightly charred.
