Beat the Heat with these Summer Pairings!

Cocktails & Cigars – The Perfect Summer Pairing

Who doesn’t like to sit back and relax with a coffee or cocktail with a luscious smoke in the shade with a cool breeze amid summer, right?
Whether you’ve got the sun glaring down on your sunglasses in the beach or soaking up the views from a fancy rooftop bar, no warm-weather smoke should go down without a cocktail in hand!
We have curated a selection of pairing suggestions that you can try out to beat this heat!

The iconic Havana classic, perfectly refreshing and balanced with a simple recipe that can be tuned to your taste or your favourite cigar.
Pair with the velvety smooth, nutty yet creamy and chocolatey profiles of Montecristo Open Master cutting through the bright and bubbly sweetness of the rum.
