The Story Behind The Glamping, Not Camping
Glamping, Not Camping is a drink as sophisticated and fabulous as it sounds. It is fresh, cooling, and bursting with flavor. The employment of the briny manzanilla sherry as the base, supported with the strength of the rum, is a flavor duo that is reminiscent of a dry salted toffee.
Lime and pineapple add tropical fruit flavors to the mix, while the liqueurs add depth and nuance. Note: This is a recipe for the experienced home bartender or imbiber up for the challenge.
- 1 ½ ounces manzanilla sherry
- ½ ounce aged rum
