Just because you’re going camping doesn’t mean you have to miss out on a great cocktail hour. With a little prep, enjoying mixed and prepared drinks on your camping trip is as easy as pie (mmmmm, now we want pie!). Here are 14 of our favorite camping cocktails to enjoy by the fire, on the lake or snuggled up in an RV rental.

Campfire Sling

Put on a show for your friends with this fun drink made by the fire with gin, apple cider and lemon. If you’re up for the challenge, the show really starts when you release the oils from the orange zest through a flaming wood pick.

It’s not Mom’s apple pie, but apples, cinnamon and bourbon make for a comforting drink at the end of day full of outdoor adventure.

Cinnamon Maple Whiskey Sour

Mimosas are another classic and easy recipe to make while camping. Add a little of your favorite fruit or juice if you like. And for a non-alcoholic version for the non-drinkers in your crew, sub in sparkling white grape juice.

Dark and Stormy 

Hopefully it won’t resemble the weather on your trip, but rum, beer and a lime wedge make for an easy and delicious drink.
