What do you drink while smoking?

In the past I really enjoyed single malt with my cigars. Due to living in the vets quarters alchohol is not allowed here. I love tea but dont think hot tea is a good accompaniment and I was never big on hot coffee. Remembering cold coffee we would get from Korea and japan when I was a kid, I am thinking something like this would work. It had milk and sugar in it. So what do you drink while smoking?

Don't ever think the reason I am peaceful is because I forgot how to be violent.

Most of the time, I drink water or nothing at all. I do really enjoy unsweetened ice tea, as well. Not much of a hot tea drinker.

I have a couple pipe blends that go really well with hot creamed and sweetened coffee.

If it’s a particularly full bodied cigar, I prefer drinking 7up.

Thank you for your service

I drink whatever I'm drinking.. I'm not a reviewer. I smoke cigars for enjoyment not employment

Usually a micro brew or a good bourbon also a seltzer with a lemon wedge

Water, coffee or tea. I might have a craft root beer a couple of times a year. I found a Black Cherry Lemonade that was good with a smoke but of course since it was something I really liked I canít find it anymore!

25 oz of water with a 1/4 spoon of real mineral salt always, in addition Coffee in the AM, Scotch or Bourbon, Port wine on occasion,sometimes a Kevita probiotics cayenne pepper and lemon. I used to keep a Root Beer on hand in case I had a high Vit N stick. Think I may have graduated since itís been a long time since I needed one.

For me. It’s less about the cigar and more about the time of day and day of the week. If it is a weekend and afternoon or later then it is always either a craft beer or an old fashioned. If it is a week day and in the evening then it is paired with water. And anytime I find myself smoking in the morning, it’s black coffee.

Out of every 100 men, 10 shouldn't be here, 80 are targets, 9 are real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, but 1 is a warrior, and he will save the others.

I really need a beverage with my cigar. 3 out of 4 times, Itís an adult beverage. Usually, itís whatever I have whether straight tequila, scotch or whiskey neat, stiff cocktail of some sort, or a beer. When I donít have an alcoholic beverage, I like a sweet tea. When thatís not available, it really doesnít matter at that point

I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.
