RED HOOK — How about a stogie with your Sazerac?

Botanica, a waterfront bar located at 220 Conover St., will be partnering with Manhattan tobacconist Nat Sherman for the second summer in a row, to create a cigar and cocktails pairing menu.

The menu, first brought to Botanica last year, will be available from May 16 to the early fall.

Previous menu offerings were priced between $8 to $14 last year, and included a seven-year Widow Jane Bourbon with Nat Sherman Timeless Churchill and a Dark Rye Collins with Nat Sherman Timeless Especiale.

Nat Sherman's pop-up shop, which will open next door to Botanica on May 16 at 218 Conover St., will offer a collection of cigars, cigarettes and accessories.

The complex is also home to organic chocolate factory Cacao Prieto and Widow Jane Whiskey, a local small-batch distillery.

“We are looking forward to returning to Red Hook for another great partnership with our friends at Widow Jane and Cacao Prieto this summer, and welcoming back our local fans and visitors to the Nat Sherman experience,” said Michael Herklots, Nat Sherman's vice president of retail and brand development, in a statment.

The Nat Sherman pop up will also offer new products from Cacao Prieto’s apothecary line, including natural soaps and bath amenities.

The pop-up shop will be open from noon to 10 p.m. on Tuesdays to Sundays.
