Cocktails You Can Inhale

The hip Red Kiva Lounge in the West Loop has introduced a drink called the VaporTini -- so called because you inhale it, rather than drink.
The "cocktail you inhale" is served in a glass with a shot of booze warmed to 110 degrees, the temperature at which alcohol begins to evaporate.

The drink is served with a straw, but you don't suck down the liquid. You suck in the vapors and hold them in for just a bit, says Red Kiva owner and VaporTini creator Julie Palmer.

Palmer got the idea for the cocktail after visiting Helsinki, Finland, where she took part in the festivities on the shortest day of the year: pouring vodka on hot coals and inhaling the vapors.
