Three of Our Favorite Camp Craft Cocktails

If you’re looking to add a little excitement to your next camping trip, then you’ll want to try one (or all!) of these camp craft cocktails. Whether you’re s’mores-ing by the fire or enjoying a beautiful sunset, these drinks will definitely add some extra flavor to your trip.

We took some of our favorite classic cocktails for these three adult beverages and adapted them to be camp-friendly. We wanted drinks that were flavorful but not too complicated and could be easily made with easy-to-find and transport ingredients.

Of course, you can modify these camp craft cocktails to your own taste, but we think they’re perfect just the way they are. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a little taste of luxury while you camp or glamp in style.

So what exactly is a camp craft cocktail?

They’re just like regular cocktails but made with ingredients that are easy to find while camping. They’re also usually made in small batches, so you don’t have to worry about lugging a bunch of liquor bottles into the woods.

Here are three of our favorite camp craft cocktails:

The Classic S’more Martini

The Classic Smore Martini

It’s like sitting by a campfire but in drink form. Who doesn’t like that? Your friends will surely be impressed when you whip this one out on your next camping trip.

The Smokey Old Fashioned

The Smokey Old Fashioned Cocktail
For something a little classier and stronger, you’ll want to try the Smokey Old Fashioned.

Of course, we had to include a camp craft cocktail perfect for sipping by the fire. This Smokey Old Fashioned is made with smoked whiskey, so it has a unique flavor you’re sure to love. It’s also a great option if you’re looking for something more substantial.
