3 Campfire Ready Cocktail Recipes From the Pros at Snake Oil Cocktail Co.

We've been known to make the argument that fall is best season to go camping (more on that here), and we're sticking by it. Gone are the tortuously hot days and nights of summer and here are the pleasantly crisp morning and evenings of fall. So when you embark on your next (and soon!) camping trip, you'll need some libations to warm up your bones. Snake Oil Cocktail Co. created these three exclusive, never-before-released camp cocktail recipes fit for the occasion. 

The Camper Shell is quite the after dinner treat with warming bourbon, Swiss Miss milk chocolate hot cocoa mix, almond butter, marshmallow and more. The Harvest Moon Mule is a full moon delicacy infused with aromatic lavender while the Logger Lemonade is a midday refresher (and easy on the throat) with fresh lemon, honey and thyme.
