I always get dragged into threads for 15 comments that weave way off subject and deserve their own thread. Well I’m starting one!
This last radio show like many of them, talk a lot about pairing your tobacco with certain drinks. Sounds great, but some of us don’t drink 20 year old scotch. My entire drinking consists of water, mixes of organic black teas and my main one Coke Zero. Now water is a given, doesn’t really add anything other than maybe some palate cleaning. My tea blends I do vary a bit. I like a strong cinnamon base with my light VA’s. Now when I get into VApers that’s when I like the Carmel mix of the Coke Zero. Now I agree on the last show that carbonation is a killer. I never pop a can while smoking, burns the tongue and leaves a bad following for the tobacco. But I let it sit a half hour or more, the carbonation is about gone, and it’s dropped to a mildly cold – Beverage. The water is always filtered, if you set a glass of tap water for six hours and look at the shit from old pipes on the bottom, probably not a good thing to put in your body.
