Mezcal Mule and Parodi Ammezzati  

The mezcal mule is a smokier take on a classic Moscow mule. By swapping traditional vodka for mezcal, you’re left with a slightly smoky yet tangy drink. This delightfully smooth cocktail is perfect to pair with Parodi Ammezzati. Sipping a slightly smoky yet citrusy mezcal mule while lighting up a rich and slightly spicy Ammezzati creates the perfect sense of harmony. 

A smoked boulevardier drink next to a Parodi Superiore cigar

Smoked Boulevardier and Parodi Superiore 

Fans of the timeless Negroni will appreciate the smoky sophistication of the Smoked Boulevardier. By choosing a peated single malt whiskey, this cocktail takes on a deeper, more complex character. Its smoky and bitter-sweet profile pairs beautifully with the smoky, roasted flavors and the bold ring gauge of the Superiore. The longer length of a Superiore allows you to slowly sip and enjoy your Smoked Boulevardier. 

A scotch sour drink in a glass on a table next to Parodi Speciale cigar

Scotch Sour and Parodi Speciale 

Substitute whiskey with your favorite scotch to enjoy the smoky tart notes of a Scotch Sour. The medium intensity and roasted notes of a Parodi Speciale allow the flavors of the cocktail to shine. The gentle smoky presence of the Speciale can be enjoyed without overpowering the citrus notes in a Scotch Sour. 

Whether you’re new to the world of smoked cocktails or you’re a scotch aficionado, a Parodi cigar is sure to be the perfect partner for these smoky drinks. Grab your favorite Parodi cigars in our shop and try these smoky cocktails today.
