We hope everyone is enjoying Summer so far. Beaches, women, cigars, and drinks; we never want the season to end! Meanwhile, we have chosen another ‘Drink of the Week’ for you to enjoy during the midst of all your Summer activities.
Drink of the Week
The Mojito is one drink that is often paired with cigars. It is refreshing, pleasing to the palate, and enhances the taste of a great smoke. The Mojito is definitely one of our favorite drinks to pair with a cigar, and we found it fitting to make it our ‘Drink of the Week’.
Light Rum (1 1/2 oz)
Simple Syrup (1 oz)
Soda Water (2 oz.)
Making a Mojito:
Mix all of the light rum, simple syrup, and 3 finely cut mint leaves into a shaker and fill with ice.
Shake, and strain into a high ball glass filled with fresh ice.
Top off your glass with soda water.
Garnish your drink with a fresh cut lime segment and mint leaves. Enjoy!
Recommended Cigar Pairing:
Arturo Fuente Opus X Perfecxion #5
Arturo Fuente Opus X Perfecxion #5 is a medium to full flavored cigar. It presents with a rich and complex taste, but the smoke inhales smoothly and caresses the palate. The Opus X is one of the world’s best rated cigars, and it is made in very limited quantities. This gem of a cigar pairs very nicely with the Mojito, and the two complement each other almost perfectly.
