Sangria is the perfect portable vacation drink because it it made in large batches and stored in pitchers or dispensable jugs. It’s fruity, refreshing, and so easy for campers to replenish their cups before hitting the lake shore beach. Try variations of sangria such as white wine with lemon lime soda, fresh melon, and Midori.


S’more Russian


Try your hand at camp fire version of the Lebowski-inspired cocktail. A traditional White Russian combines coffee liqueur, vodka, and cream. Give it a toasty upgrade by substituting Three Olives S’mores flavored vodka or Smirnoff Fluffed Marshmallow vodka and garnishing with real gooey charred marshmallows and a graham cracker crusted rim.


Fire Pit Martini


You can get interactive with your bartending skills by setting things on fire. Combine vanilla vodka with chocolate liqueur and cream for a silky sipper. Top it off with shaved dark chocolate, crushed graham cracker, and a flaming marshmallow to give it a sinful caramelized finish.


Campfire Coke


Ever mixed vodka with cola? Well now is your chance. By combining marshmallow vodka with cola you can maintain the bold flavor of the soda while giving it some boozy body. Throw in some maraschino cherry juice for an adult picnic table version of a classic diner drink. Garnish with an untoasted marshmallow for looks and watch it fizz.
