Many famous cigar users love this combination. Soon you will do too! This combination is the best as it is highly refreshing and easy to make too.
Cigar and ice-chilled mint margarita having a little amount of Tequilla will send waves of freshness in your body. Moreover, making this drink is less time-consuming and a little number of ingredients are required. So you can make it easily at home in a large quantity too. Hence, you can have it with your friends as well when you are having a summer pool party.
Pro Tip: Medium-bodied smoke and tangy margarita is a heavenly combination.
- The old school drink and cigar:
You all have heard the phrase, ‘old is gold’. Well, in the case of liquor this proverb is hundred percent true. A classic liquor having a bitter taste along with a mild to strong cigar (depending upon choice) never gets old. An orange peel and ice would work as a cherry on the top.
This pair is especially important for those who prefer strong cigars and have a habit of having liquor to relax. Also, it is a wonderful pair to serve on important semi-formal meetings.
- An amalgam of Whisky and cigar:
An amalgam of old and new is always exciting, isn’t it? A classic bourbon whiskey cocktail and the newly styled cigar are something you will never forget. This is a very spicy option.
Some fans of this duo say that they prefer it even in the winters as well. It seems like this pairing is greater than hot drink and cigar duo.
- Gin and Tonic and cigar:
What do you like both the creaminess of the smoke of cigars or the taste of cocktails? Or do you want to preserve both? Well if later is the case then you need something which will suit each other’s tastes. A bottle of sweet dessert wine and a cigar is something you need in this case.
Hence, gin and tonic with a pinch of vodka and a strong cigar is a very interesting combination. Drinking citrus fruits will play a very good role. The specialty of this drink is that it is a life savior option for those who do not want wine or something hot. It will compensate for the need for the liquor too. Additionally, it is the smoothest drink to have with your cigar.
You can change the bitterness and tanginess of the drink according to your cigar. It will be an example of a mutualistic relationship in cigar-drink pair:
- If your cigar is strong then your drink must be mild and less tangy to complement each other
- On the flip side, if you like a mild cigar then you must have citrus and a tangy drink. This way they will complement each other.
So, you have completed your read. You must be thinking of giving it a try, and we think you should. Summertime and a hectic routine are something that does not go along with each other. Changing the style of your drinks from hot chocolates, coffee, and tea to these fresh cocktails will make your relaxing time wonderful.
