Description

This is an alcoholic beverage that contains Nicotine. The Nicotini has emerged as a result of restaurants banned smoking. It is made by saturating tobacco leaves in vodka overnight along with other liquors in order to reduce the juice's harshness. The drink is designed to give the buzz and taste of a cigarette. It was designed to cater to those smokers who do not want to get up and go outside to smoke. It was invented on Fort Lauderdale’s Los Olas Boulevard by the owner of the Cathode Ray Club.
