Much like the right wine can enhance a meal, choosing the appropriate e-cigarette flavor has the potential to take your evening from OK to excellent. If you recently ordered a Deluxe Variety 10 Flavor assorted pack of cartridges to use with your South Beach Smoke e-cigarette, this is the perfect time to try pairing different tastes with your meals. Some flavors will complement certain foods, while others may not work – it really all boils down to personal preference. Here are a few ideas to try out so you can get an idea of what works best for you as an after-dinner treat:
This sweet, subtle flavor can work well to follow up any dish – think about vanilla ice cream – but it is especially smooth and enjoyable after an Americana meal. Mashed potatoes and steak, a cheesy casserole and a hearty chicken dinner, for instance, all make delicious appetizers for your vanilla e-cig. The flavor will also pair nicely with your after dinner cup of coffee, giving you a sweet finish to a tasty dinner.
If you're dining on Italian food, whether spaghetti, lasagna or eggplant Parmesan, you can keep the rich flavors going long after the plates have been cleared by vaping a chocolate e-cigarette. The rich taste is a good match for the decadent meal you just ate, and an e-cig has far fewer calories than a slice of tiramisu. It also goes great with a glass of red wine, which just so happens to be ideal for Italian dining.
Perfect for barbecues, the fruity flavor of peach balances the grilled veggies, burgers and dogs you had for dinner. After chowing down on juicy hamburgers, the peach e-cigarette will be a welcome taste of sweetness. It is simply a good match for warm weather, especially when you're eating outside with friends and family. Peach also complements a cold beer or a glass of chilled white wine quite nicely.
Much like an after dinner mint, a peppermint e-cigarette is ideal after any meal. The refreshing minty taste will cleanse your palate and invigorate your senses, whether you visited a Chinese buffet, tried Indian food or dined on chicken fingers and French fries.
This tropical taste partners quite well with Caribbean and other south-of-the-border cuisine. Fish dishes are especially enhanced by vaping on a piña colada e-cig after you've cleaned your plate. It also goes well with summery cocktails, but drinking a piña colada while using an e-cig of the same flavor can be a bit too much. Instead try a margarita or a glass of sangria.
Cherry may be just the ticket to enhance a gourmet meal, as its sweet, candy-like taste is a great match for dishes like honey-glazed lamb or oysters Rockefeller. It tastes great with champagne, but your cherry e-cig's true soul mate may just be a glass of fine cognac.
Tobacco Classic, Blue and Gold
Traditional flavors like Classic, Blue and Gold go well with just about any meal, but they are especially satisfying after dining on something hearty. Steak, ribs, meatloaf, beef stew and chili are sure to fill you up, and a traditional flavor is just what you need to ease your aching, over-full belly.
After you eat a spicy meal, grab a menthol cartridge and get to vaping. The cool flavor will calm your taste buds after the shock treatment of eating a meal laden with jalapeños or a plate of buffalo wings.
These are just a few suggestions, but you might find that you prefer a different pairing. The only way to discover what works for you is to start trying flavors out.
