Why does tobacco/nicotine hit harder while drunk?

I’m not an avid smoker by any means but when I take a puff of cigarette or Juul after 2-5 drinks it seems to have much more of a ‘buzz’. Why is this??

    Drinking before using tobacco can intensify nicotine or tar s effects. This is because alcohol increases the absorption of tobacco/weed/Cigarettes main psychoactive ingredient, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), nicotine, tar, etc.

    This generally results in a stronger high. While this might be nice for some folks, it can cause others to green out.
