Beginner Cigar - Best Drink to Pair with a Cigar

31st May 2021

Hi, and welcome to another episode of Mondays with Mardos. I'm Gerard and this week we're going to talk about soda pairings with your cigar. But before I get going, I need you to click on that subscribe button, click on the bell to be notified every single week of new episodes of Mondays with Mardos.

All right. So this week we're not talking about pairing cigars with soft drinks. Now, for many, many years, I always thought this was blasphemous. The only thing you're supposed to drink with your cigar is water, covering water with some lemon or any kind of spirit. And you're supposed to sip on spirits, not really get drunk. But have I done it before? Yes, of course, I'll admit it. But that's fast forward, whole new different generation. A lot of things are changing in this cigar industry. And now, I will drink a soft drink with my cigar. One of the reasons why I do it now that I've been educated is that nicotine, just like alcohol, sears away the sugar in your bloodstream. And that can cause drunkness, if you have spirits as well as the nausea. Within cigars, when you have a lot of nicotine with your system and it sears the sugar within your bloodstream, you're going to get nauseated.

So in order to get a little bit recovery, you definitely want to get some sugar. I see guys that carry packets of sugar. These guys are the old guys that walk around with canes and they can afford to be weird and put sugar packets in their pocket. But for us cool guys, we're going to drink soft drinks. So I want something pretty heavy loaded. I don't want anything diet. I want real sugar in there. And we have three different choices here. My number one choice, if I could, I love bottled drinks, and this is glass. So not every single liquor store or convenience store is going to have root beer, let alone be it nice and chill. Like this one is sweating and it's beautiful. Root beer has a load of sugar in it, and it's just... It feels like a beer, and I love the flavor.

Number two would be my choice will be Dr. Pepper. I just really, really liked Dr. Pepper. I loved that syrupy flavor and I know it's reliable and I can find it almost at any convenience store. Coca-Cola or Coke Vanilla is another choice that has a lot of good flavors in there. It has the load of sugar as well. The only downfall is I cannot find Coke Vanilla, every single convenience store within every single street corner. So Dr. Pepper is always going to be my number one, because I know I can find it everywhere, but if I do find a chilled nice cold bottle of root beer, that would be my number one go-to.

Anyway, that is why I choose soft drinks, because if I'm going to smoke multiple cigars that night or that evening, or that event, I'm going to definitely need some sugar. So that's why I go for these choices. Anyways, let me know what you think of my choices within the comments, or let us know what like to drink as a soft drink to relieve your nausea whenever you're smoking cigar. Other than that, I'll see you guys next week, but remember to follow us on Instagram, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube channel. See you guys.
