Viva La Zambra! discovering the Andalucian gem in the Mijas Hills

The destination that stole our hearts, however, was the less frequented Almería province, another couple of hours drive east. We lingered in San José, an easy going whitewashed fishing village where a desert landscape of agave and palms recedes into beautiful sandy beaches. And the city of Almería itself is all the better for being off the tourist trail. Head to the Casa Puga, about the Platonic ideal of a tapas bar: raucous, friendly, barely changed since 1870. Order the swordfish on toast. Then you will want to swing by the tiny Kiosco Amalia for a highly photogenic nightcap known as the Americano, no relation of the Campari cocktail or the coffee, but a panther-pink secret mixture of cola-nut liqueur, sugar and hot milk. I swear — it is an elixir to set a person up for the year.
