Dive into Summer: Petri cigars and classic Italian cocktails make a great match

July 22, 2021

The best way to enjoy the summer is with an Avanti cigar in one hand and an ice-cold drink in the other. We’ve selected some classic cocktails that share our Italian roots and pair perfectly with our Petri cigars. These refreshing cocktails are the perfect way to beat the summer heat while indulging in the timeless summer smoke experience. We hope you enjoy these pairings as much as we do! 

Petri Toscano & Americano 

Unlike the espresso drink by the same name that we know and love, this classic Italian drink is made with Campari, Sweet Vermouth, and club soda and garnished with an orange wedge. The Americano is the perfect combination of bitter and sweet. The club soda keeps the drink light, and the bitterness of the Campari pairs wonderfully with the earthy roasted flavors of a Petri Toscano.

Petri Sigaretto & Bellini

Made with peaches and Prosecco, this classic Italian cocktail is a bubbly and refreshing favorite during the hot summer months. The sweetness from the peaches complements the earthy notes of the Sigaretto. Keep your cool and enjoy the flavors of ripe summer stone fruit with this delightful pairing! 

Petri Tosconello & Negroni

A refreshing blend of gin, sweet vermouth and the classic Campari, the Negroni is a sophisticated summertime favorite. The bitterness from the Campari and the orange peel garnish is the perfect companion for the peppery, smokey notes of a Petri Tosconello. This sophisticated duo will have you puffing in style!

No matter your summer drink preference, we have the wide selection of cigars for any occasion. Find the perfect companion in our online shop!
