Cookie information in log file

Hopefully someone here can help me with an issue I am currently facing
regarding logging in nginx.
We have a customer who uses Google Urchin, the commercial version of
Google analytics. This tracker needs the cookie information in the last
field of any given line in the log file. Apparently Apache is able to
put that information in there from what the Google Urchin help pages
At the moment I am using the following log format for our nginx servers:
'$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] '
'"$request" $status $body_bytes_sent '
'"$http_referer" "$http_user_agent" '
In the wiki on codemongers I couldn't find something regarding this
cookie information and also Google wasn't very helpful.
Is there something like $http_cookie which I could simply append to my
current log format that would bring the same functionality as the log
format Google describes for Apache?
Thank you in advance for any hints.
