Our camping recipes list would not be complete without a few cocktails!
What’s your preference: Shaken Or Stirred?
Camping is a time to unplug, rest and relax. When we camp, we like to spend time with family and friends while enjoying good food and cocktails.
Not all camping cocktails need to contain alcohol but they certainly can if that’s your preference.
We’ve got options for both in our awesome recipes for the best camping drinks!
Camping Drinks For Adults Only

It makes a great gift that you don’t even have to wrap because it comes in a decorative box!

When your camping drink recipes call for sliced fruit, it is great to have a flexible cutting mat for the task!

It makes a great gift too!
One of the most refreshing summer cocktails is the Ginger Beer Moscow Mule.
The combination of lime and mint really cools the palate. There are lots of variations to this cocktail and can even be made without alcohol too!
Moscow Mule Copper Mug Set
The traditional way to serve a Moscow Mule Cocktail is in a copper mug because it keeps the drink so icy cold.
Some even come with a copper straw to make sure your cocktail stays cold as long as possible!
This set comes with 4 mugs, copper straws, a shot glass and spoon.
Sipping a sweet & fruity, cool & refreshing camping drink while relaxing in a hammock at our favorite campsite is how this camping drink got its name.

The tartness of the lemon contrasts nicely with the sweetness of the raspberries and earthy flavors of the fresh rosemary.
The first time I heard about the ingredients in these classic cocktails, I didn’t even want to try them. How could rum, simple syrup, lime juice, mint leaves and club soda combine to make something that tastes good? Yes, I was a skeptic but now this classic mojito is one of my favorite cocktails!

Did you ever hear about Arizona’s 5 C’s? The state was built on Copper, Cattle, Cotton, Citrus and Climate. So, when we want a super-refreshing drink, we shake up a bit of grapefruit, orange and lime + a few extra ingredients to create this alcohol-free cocktail. Prefer an adult version? Just add a shot of vodka or gin.
You can’t get much more refreshing than combining fresh lemon, cucumber and mint! These ingredients are muddled then shaken so they are icy cold and strained from a cocktail shaker and served over ice.
