Summer is just round the corner and the prospect of sipping on sundowners on warm, balmy evenings is finally within reach. What timely news, then, that there’s a brand new cocktail menu across all Camino sites, in addition to some exciting new seasonal dishes. True to the Spanish (and Camino) style, the varied range of Premium Gin & Tonics come served with a garnish in large goblets with plenty of ice and an eclectic range of Fever Tree tonic.

For a fragrant drink with floral notes, the Martin Miller’s Westbourne includes British gin, distilled with Icelandic water, Seville orange peel, cucumber and aromas of Parma violet served with elderflower tonic and cucumber. The 5th Gin Fire, meanwhile, is infused with red fruits, blackberries and blueberries, and comes served with aromatic tonic and strawberries. Elsewhere, the Seedlip Garden is a bafflingly convincing alcohol-free version.
As for the cocktails, vermouth features heavily on the list, as does sherry, both havAnothercently had a renaissance in London. The Seville Spritz, for example, is light and refreshing, featuring Lustau Vermut Blanco, Fever Tree Mediterranean tonic, fresh orange and rosemary. Another low alcohol option is the Sherry Cobbler, an invigorating berry drink with a Manzanilla sherry twist. For something stronger, try the Sloe Bourbon, with a quick milk wash, Makers Mark Bourbon, Patxaran and Angostura Bitters.
At this point you may need something to soak up the booze, why not try one of the new May food specials created by Executive Chef Nacho Del Campo? The Cornish Pollock comes with sautéed broad beans, butter sauce & salsa verde, and the Spiced Breaded Aubergines are stuffed with onions, allspice and yoghurt, with honey dressing.
