New Cocktail: The Bourbon Dip Spit

"But even that process takes a back seat to the Smoker’s Delight, served at Todd Thrasher’s bar PX in Alexandria, Va. Mr. Thrasher takes three or four different kinds of tobacco, steeps them in hot water for five minutes, strains it, adds sugar and reduces the mixture. He mixes a few drops of this with bourbon, honey syrup and lemon juice."
—I do something very similar to this, except I have a bourbon and smoke a cigarette. But, you know, either way.

….annnnd this liquid is a drink? Or an aftershave spritzer? Because I do like a man to smell like bourbon, tobacco and lemon notes.

Mr. Thrasher must not read very many murder mysteries, cause everyone knows that nicotine-based insecticide is like the fourth most popular deadly poison after cyanide, strychnine, and arsenic.

Three or four! Because if you steeped just one kind, it would taste so pedestrian. If it were the 90s it would be called Bourbon with Four Tobaccos.

Is this like the poor man's absinthe?
