Immediately he reached for a cigarette. And the next thing I knew, he was crumbling it into my cocktail.
The drink is called "D.F. Irreverente." I didn't get the exact proportions; it was kinda loud, and I got the impression he was freestyling it anyway. But I did note the ingredients:
Garnish with chile-spiced pineapple slice
Tobacco from one cigarette
2 oz Bacardi white rum
Large pour fresh pineapple juice
Shake with ice and strain
Straining the drink removes the tobacco. Sandoval (who was surprised and pleased to learn he has an overweight namesake on the San Francisco Giants) says the tobacco gives both a flavorful tang and a slight nicotine buzz to the drink.
I can't say for sure if my buzz was particularly different. I'm not a smoker, so it didn't satisfy a craving; fortunately it didn't create one either. I will say that I partied somewhat longer than usual that night, so if you want to give credit to the nicotine and not the exotic atmosphere, it's possible.
But I'm burying the lead: the drink was quite tasty. Fresh pineapple juice makes a huge difference.
