Spring is upon us in Woodstock, Georgia, and the it seems like the perfect time to start making our way outdoors with a cigar and a cocktail.  Pick out your favorite cigar, grab a lawn chair, and get your mixing glass ready for a refreshing cocktail.

Here are a few, easy to make cocktails to enjoy with a cigar this spring:

Cigars and Cocktails

Ginger Ale and Bourbon

  • 1.5 oz of Bourbon
  • 2 oz of ginger ale

Grab your favorite bourbon (we suggest Four Roses Yellow Label) and mix with in your ginger ale with a stirring spoon.  Add ice, light up your cigar, and relax.  If you’re looking to add a spicier (complex, not “hot” spicy) flavor to the mix, try using Bulleit Rye Bourbon.

Irish Coffee

  • 2.5 oz of strong, hot coffee
  • 1.5 oz of your favorite Irish Whiskey
  • 1 tsp brown sugar

Pour the coffee, the whiskey, and the brown sugar into a mug, stir, and enjoy.  This is a great drink to enjoy on those cool, spring nights with your favorite cigar.

Rusty Nail

For many of us single malt Scotch lovers, we believe that a good single malt should be drunk neat.  When making a Rusty Nail, stick to that rule.  Use a blended whisky, which usually mixes better with cocktails, and enjoy.
