Cigars are born from nature and should be enjoyed in nature.
The ACID Kuba Kuba is the ideal cigar to lay back and relax with on a beautiful day. The inimitable infused cigar has a secret combination of pleasant tobaccos, a beautiful sandy colored Connecticut Shade wrapper carefully cured with a blend of natural herbs, essential oils and floral botanicals. For those who enjoy flavorful infused cigars or those who just want a change of pace, ACID Kuba Kuba is an easygoing cigar experience.
On a warm day I’ll pair a Kuba Kuba with a tropical rum drink and dream of laying in a hammock on Maui. On cooler days, especially rainy ones, I’ll have a Dark n’ Stormy and stand on my porch watching the storm roll in. Whatever mood or situation you’re in there’s always a drink to compliment your smoke. Here are a few suggestions you may want to try.
On cooler nights the warmth of rum and ginger is invigorating.
Ginger Spiced Negroni
1 part Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
1 part Campari®

In empty mixing glass, measure Sailor Jerry. Add Campari®, ginger liqueur & sweet vermouth. Add a few chunks of ice and stir to blend flavors and dilute. Add more ice and repeat. Strain into empty chilled old fashioned glass. Add fresh ice block and garnish with candied ginger.
On those Cubanesque humid summer nights a Hemingway favorite might do the trick. This version has a little twist!
