    This comes to mind as I smoke Haunted Bookshop with water...not all that pleasurable. I just switched to soda, that bit of syrup I think has enhanced it's flavor for me. Curious what you guys drink.

    I usually drink water, tea, RedBull, whisky or coffee.

    But I also been known to drink the blood of my enemies.

    a.m., coffee.

    p.m., Irish coffee.

    I like to keep things simple.

    Coffee, water, hot tea, iced tea, diluted Gatorade mix, Emergen-C, random snooty beers in brown bottles, in roughly that descending order.

    Water most of the time as I am outside walking or in the car. I try to not smoke in the house. But coffee is nice as is tea.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Black tea with milk usually (English style). I find that alcoholic beverages block the flavour of the tobacco. So I’m either smoking or drinking but neither at the same time. Unless it’s tea.

    Whatever I'm drinking at the time, but Islay Single Malt. If I'm lucky.

    Seltzer and bergs with citrus or cran, coffee, tea, iced tea, Mexican or hippy soda pop with real sugar. Separately, as a rule.

    Most days of the week, water. When it's an adult beverage, it's homemade apple wine to go with the homegrown tobacco I normally smoke. I have heard that you can make a quick and dirty moonshine in small batches on your stovetop from the lees, bad batches, etc.

    I usually have a tea or ice water with a pipe if it is just me. If I am over at my neighbours then it is a nice peaty scotch. You can't really miss- if it is enhancing your enjoyment of the smoke, then do it.

    I'm mostly a beer guy. I like Víking Rökkr/Gylltur, Einstök pale ale/white ale, Gull, Steðji, Kaldi, DAB, Bitburger, Paulaner, Pilsner Urquell, Murphy's or Kilkenny depending on the mood.
    If it comes to stronger drinks, then Brennivín, Birkir or Irish whiskey - Bushmills, Paddy, Connemara, Jameson Black Barrel, Redbreast and the good old Tullamore Dew.
    Pipe is the best with a cold beer I think.

    Too much! At least I did last night and I'm paying for it now

    Smoking is one of the leading causes of all statistics.

    Coffee or tea in the morning and daytime. Beer or bourbon in the evening. I don't drink water while smoking. I drink close to a gallon of water a day as it is, I don't want to drink it when enjoying a pipe.

    Coffee most of the time. Sometimes tea. The occasional diet coke once in a rare while. I need something a little on the sweet side when I'm puffing on some fine tobacco. I think it enhances the tobacco flavor.

    Isn't everything enhanced with cheap scotches?

    I lean more towards cheap rum for "enhancement"...

    I find it really delivers in bringing out the flavor of my smoke, plus coffee with chicory is just amazing. I find it odd that it's not more popular.

    Also very good is a strong brewed semi sweet black tea.

    This is really nice from time to time...

    On a hot day, this stuff is king...

    And then there is this...

    I like hard cider myself. In the summer I'll ferment for a week or so and drink it right off for a lighter drink on hot days.

    Coke, Barq's Root Beer, or a lemony iced tea. I like something sweet to help keep the nicotine from getting ahead of me.

    For a change, I’m enjoying some blackberry iced tea today. I’ve been working in the yard and the heat & humidity have combined to give us an equivalent of 98 degrees Fahrenheit!
    I’ll probably be back to my coffee after I’ve showered and cooled down a bit.

    In my opinion, there's really not a better pairing with most pipe tobacco than good absinthe. I prefer the flavors of scotch & bourbon on their own or with a cigar, but absinthe works really well with most non-aromatic pipe tobaccos, or anything topped with anise

    Tea is my constant companion. Assam, Darjeeling, Puerh, Scottish breakfast, English Afternoon, Earl Grey, Purple, Lapsang, etc. I think you get the picture.

    Coffee with the first smoke of the day then a combination of water and brewed tea. Some Matcha on some days. Beer or bourbon on rare occasions.

    If at the lounge, port (they only have a beer/wine license).
    If at home, bourbon (Woodford, Knob Creek, Blanton's, or whatever I have at the time) or Trader Joe's blended Scotch.

    Some times water, or nothing at all. My drink choice habit was driven by smoking cigars, which I find the hard alcohol really helps to clean the palate, and is almost necessary with cigars. Much less of an issue with the pipe

    I don't smoke in the morning, and can't do coffee at night, so.....
