V2 Cigs has released limited edition cartridges in 3 delicious drink flavors: Sambuca, Mojito, and Piña Colada. These flavors are so spot-on it makes you feel like you’re enjoying the real thing! For those who don’t know, Sambuca is an anise-flavored Italian liqueur that comes in three varieties. The most common is referred to as white Sambuca, which is clear, black Sambuca, which is dark purple, and red Sambuca. The drink can be consumed straight, or it can be set on fire, which is a very popular way to take the shot. The shot is lit on fire and then extinguished with the palm of your hand, causing a suction that makes the glass stick to your palm. The shot is then finished while the drink is still warm, making it a perfect drink for fall. Some people choose to consume the drink with 3 coffee beans in the glass, with the coffee beans signifying health, happiness and prosperity. The drink is a somewhat sweet, with a licorice flavor. V2 Cigs captured this flavor perfectly by creating a blend of sweet licorice and other spices. I have had my fair share of Sambuca, and the V2 Sambuca cartridges truly capture the flavor of this unique drink. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who is a licorice enthusiast or to someone who just wants to try a flavor that’s really sweet and unique.
The piña colada flavor was my hands-down favorite, but maybe that’s just because I’m a huge fanatic about piña coladas! A traditional piña colada is a cocktail made from rum, cream of coconut, and pineapple juice. It can be served blended or shaken with ice, and is usually garnished with a pineapple wedge, a maraschino cherry, or both. It’s definitely a drink made for when you want to kick back and enjoy a little slice of paradise. It’s so popular in Puerto Rico, that it’s been their national drink since 1978. The V2 Piña Colada cartridges perfectly capture the sweet taste of pineapple and coconut, creating a smooth and tasty vaping experience. These cartridges would definitely pair nicely with an ice cold piña colada and a hot, sunny day.
The mojito flavor was another one of my favorites. A mojito typically consists of white rum, sugar, lime juice, sparking water, and mint. The drink is usually served on the rocks in a Collins glass. I think it’s a perfect drink for those summer days when you need something that’s crisp and refreshing to sip on. The mint and lime complement each other perfectly, and the sparking water gives it a carbonated freshness. It makes you feel like you’re relaxing somewhere in Havana, where the drink originated. The V2 Mojito cartridges capture this invigorating drink and its hues of flavors, making you think you’re actually drinking one! It features hints of lime and mint, leaving you with a sweet sparking taste in your mouth. I’d recommend this to anyone who enjoys mojitos, or just someone who wants to feel like it’s summer all year round.
These three flavors of V2 Cigs cartridges pair nicely with their respective drinks. I’ve tried each cartridge with the corresponding drink and it was a delightful experience. If you’re sipping on a piña colada, why chase it down with a coffee or chocolate flavored cartridge? Pair it with V2’s Piña Colada flavor and you’ll have an explosion of wonderful flavors on your palette! The same goes with the mojito and Sambuca flavors (I’ve tried them all!). All three flavors come in five different nicotine strengths: 2.4%, 1.8%, 1.2%, 0.6%, and 0%. No matter what strength you try, the delightful flavor is preserved. Try some today and become the ultimate drink connoisseur! You always know you’re in good hands with the V2 Warranty too.
