Take a look at the photo of this cocktail. You see what I did there? A visual pun. The garnish is in the shape of a “C” for Camino, and the glass is decorated with rays.
Anyway, this is an amazing drink courtesy of Ted Henwood. The ingredients are so disparate, that it looks like a Frankenstein’s monster. And yet… An aged tequila works beautifully with a dry sherry. If you think of this drink in basic terms, it has all the requirements: base spirit, wine based modifier, sweetener and bitters.
Lovely, and each ingredient enhances the other. Great job, Ted!
