The smaller quantity does not make a difference: The Prophet (ﷺ) said: If a large amount of anything causes intoxication, a small amount of it is prohibited.

In regard to this question which could be considered as an approved practice, there seems to be some viewpoints which apparently are not precisely the same, but could be considered as a permissible act by observing some conditions.
