The Pipeline is a refreshing drink, perfect when you need to cool down with something not too alcoholic.
It’s easy and fast to prepare. This cocktail is very popular in Austria, Germany and Switzerland and resembles at parts the
American Lemonade. Although there are some obvious differences: the cucumber and the alcoholic part.
The necessary ingredients for the preparation are:
– 4 cl Vodka
– 3 cl lime juice
– 12 cl pineapple juice
– 2 cl almond sirup
– 2 small slices of cucumber
The preparation is simple and fast: put all the ingredients, cucumber included, in a shaker. Add ice cubes and shake it for a couple seconds. Let the mix rest for a moment, so that the aroma of the cucumber gets intensified.
Take a long drink gas and pour the mix. The pipeline is ready to be served!
Many different versions are possible, depending on our personal taste. You can add 4 cl of lime juice or replace the almond sirup with some amaretto!
CIGARS TO PAIR
Cain Daytona 550: the cigar and cocktail paring creates a balanced based on the contrast between the sweet from the drink and the pleasant bittering notes from the Cain, that get developed in the second half of the smoke. Considering the aromatic profile, the rich spices of the cigar get even more enjoyable by the pipeline, due to the refreshing feeling gived in every sip.
Ramon Allones Small Club Coronas: also in this case the paring is weel made because of the spices developed by the Ramon Allones and the refreshing notes of the Pipiline. The Small Club Coronas is a shorter smoke compared to the Cain, and is a good alternative if you don’t have enough time to dedicate to this pairing.
