Mint-Kissed Lemontini Camping Cocktail Recipe

Our favorite camping drinks are sure to please your palette! We all have our essential “never leave home without it” camp supplies. One piece of equipment that tops my list is my martini shaker … no judging! I love using this handy piece of bar gear to make non-alcoholic drinks just as much as I do the spiked kind.

This Mint-Kissed Lemontini Camping Cocktail Recipe is one of those drinks that can be done either way. The freshness of the lemon is extra special when the essential oils from the mint leaves are released during the shaken – not stirred – superior preparation method.
