Sometimes a cigar calls for a drink that keeps you warm: cognac, port, espresso. And on warm days, you might prefer a cigar-friendly drink to keep you cool like a Cuba Libre or a Cigar Lover’s “Martini.” Indeed, at some point in history, a brave soul tried combining cognac and port into a single cocktail.
2 oz. Remy Martin VSOP Cognac
½ oz. Quinta do Noval 10 Year Tawny Port
Add the ingredients over ice, stir, strain, and garnish with a flamed orange peel.
