Inspired by the Brandy Alexander, a dessert cocktail that often incorporates ice cream, Smith started by making honey-mustard gelato.

The other ingredients: crushed honey-mustard pretzels (for garnish), the Sicilian liqueur Averna Amaro, A.E. Dor Napoleon cognac, and Miele Thun acacia honey

Prep a martini glass by dipping it into the honey (Smith also used "a little bit" of the Miele Thun acacia to sweeten his gelato).

Then dip it into crushed honey-mustard pretzels.
