The Story Behind The Camarena Winter Sun

Soft and smooth on the palate, Camarena Reposado Tequila is the perfect companion for festive mixed holiday beverages like this riff on the Matador. The Winter Sun comes together quickly using just three ingredients, but don’t let its simplicity fool you. Aged in oak barrels for 60 days, this reposado features vanilla and caramel layered with natural agave sweetness and notes of soft spice. Sip this nuanced cocktail in a Champagne coupe or rocks glass.
