Campfire Mules

Posted on

We’ve been mixing up some wild concoctions lately, from our brown sugar Old Fashioned to the tiramisu White Russian, and now we’re adding another gem to the lineup: the campfire mule.

This cocktail is a must-have for chilly evenings, but don’t let the name fool you. You don’t need a bonfire to enjoy it. Whether you’re out in the countryside or snug in your tiny apartment (like me!), this drink brings the cozy vibes wherever you are. It’s for those who love sweater weather, for those who want a warm, comforting drink to share with friends. Why not be the one known for making the best campfire mule?

Staying true to the classic Moscow mule, we’ve swapped vodka for smoky bourbon or whiskey, added a hint of maple syrup for that autumn touch, kept the lemon juice and ginger beer, and even thrown in a roasted marshmallow garnish (because, you know, campfire vibes).

Stay cozy, friends!
