Cocktail shaker (I love my Godinger Dublin shaker).
If you don’t have these two items, in a pinch you can use a mason jar and the lid for straining your drink into the glass.
If you want to make the smoke effect to really make this drink spooky and magical, you need a cocktail smoking gun like the one I used which is from Amazon. This is a great tool for making all kinds of fun drinks like a Smoked Old Fashioned.
