What can absorb alcohol, be able to burn, and be safe to consume? I'm thinking dried herbs, tea, or rice although I'm not sure if the rice would burn. Instead of burning herbs and spices to make a smoke and infuse a drink or ice, I want to infuse a drink with another alcohol. Sure I could just mix the two together, but that's too easy and I have a technique on how to do it in my head. I just need some ideas on what would work. I would think once the alcohol is absorbed, it would no longer hold an alcohol content.
