On this episode we welcome back Michael Cappellini of Toscano cigars to the show to host a virtual pairing episode with all of us. The first pairing is a Toscano Garibaldi with the “Godfather” drink – equal parts half and half of bourbon and amaretto. Michael then walks us through a few different methods of combining the two – ending with a smoke out of the drink with your cigar smoke which we HIGHLY recommend.
The second pairing was a Stillnovo with a Negroni and an Aperol Spritz. Again, the same methods used and it really brings out the flavor in both the cigar and the alcohol in their own ways. In the news we discussed some of the CRA’s recent behavior and how it should be cleaned up for a brighter future.
