With the smoking ban looming, a Pearl-tipped solution for the lady.

On July the first, as we are all too painfully aware, we shall no longer live in a civilised country.

Nanny State has finally found our fags and banned them from the nursery – no more the postprandial, no more the rush for the Dupont as a prettified gamine screws a fresh sobranie into her holder.

All gone, all ashes… But don't despair! The bar staff at the trés élégante Pearl in London WC1 have come up with a chic little resolve for when madam's absolutely gasping.

Perhaps in deep gratitude for the Government's protection of their neo-natally pink alveoli, they've come up with the Nicotini, a £9.95 cocktail made with Havana Club rum infused with a Montecristo Havana cigar, rosemary and tobacco-infused Demerara sugar.

The Head Barman at Pearl, Gustavo Bertolucci, developed the cocktail, which also includes freshly squeezed lemon juice and egg whites, to gift a light, tobacco lift to customers who won't then have to brave the horizontal sleet and hordes of beggars that are soon to become the attendant perils of a once noble hobby.
