particles or fluid fx would be the best options, I would imagine. Other than comping in actual smoke, anyway.

Use dynamics: Multipoint works well, add an air field (make sure all is going in the y direction) You should be good to go. Just muddle with the speed, spread, point size etc. make sure you add oppacity to you liking and choose a color.
