The aptly named Burning History cocktail at Zuma is a complex combination of smoky and citrus. Yuzu and egg whites lend sweet, frothy notes while smoke from wood fire seasons the glass, making for a layered sip.

½ ounce ginger syrup

½ ounce honey water

½ ounce yuzu juice

½ ounce egg white

Plum bitters


American white oak wood

Dried orange
