Tobacco Returns To The Bar, This Time Inside Cocktails
Even as smoking bans spread across the U.S., mixologists are coming up with tobacco-infused tipples. But tobacco experts say these drinks could be risky because there’s no way of knowing how much nicotine is in them.
This is so understated it’s not even funny. You know how you have heard about all those kids getting nicotine poisoning because of the flavored vaporizer cartridges. Double down on this because you have no idea how much tobacco was used to make the bitters or cocktail and you can get that same feeling of not being drunk like if you have an energy drink cocktail.
I’ve had a fantastic Manhattan with tobacco bitters at OX but I’ve also had one with orange bitters and chocolate bitters that were just as good with no real risk other than being so damn good I needed a second.
I’m making my own bitters right now and despite wanting to make tobacco bitters I’m going to pass.
