£5 Cocktail: The Toreador!

Before the Margarita became the tequila-sipper’s drink of choice, another boozy tipple was making a name for itself among agave aficionados. This, friends, was THE TOREADOR!

First mentioned way back in 1937 in the ‘Cafe Royal Cocktail Book’, this delicious concoction of Reposado Tequila, Apricot Brandy and freshly squeezed lime juice predates the margarita’s first appearance in the history books by sixteen years.

Our new head barman Will Hawes is bringing this awesome cocktail back as the first of our £5 monthly specials. He follows Simon Difford’s classic recipe:

2 shots of Reposado Tequila (100% agave!)
1 shot of Apricot Brandy
1 shot of freshly squeezed lime juice

 

Enjoy now at El Camion for just five round shiny ones!
