When we think about going camping, cocktails don't tend to be the first thing to spring to mind.

But as we come into winter, indulging in a glamping experience rather than traditional camping is incredibly appealing.

So, while we're looking at creating a more indulgent camping experience, why not make camping cocktails a thing?

Old Fashioneds by the fire anyone?

Cocktail Collective cocktail boxes contain everything you need to make delicious ready-to-mix bar-quality cocktails, from the best quality spirits, 100% pure NZ Hawkes Bay juices, down to spirit measure and easy-to-use recipe cards.

Perfectly balanced portions mean no annoying half-bottles of random ingredients leftover that you need to carry home. All you need to add is ice. That's where camping must-have the chilly bin comes into its own.

So, what are our top cocktail picks for your next camping trip?

Moscow Mule

For outdoor activities, you can't go past a cocktail that is traditionally served in a copper mug. Conveniently camping-friendly and easy to prepare, the perfect balance of spice and citrus makes the Moscow Mule a great option for your next camping adventure.


You're out in nature. You need refreshment. Nothing says good times like a Margarita. The classic combination of citrus, sweetness and tequila with a touch of salt has a crispness like nothing else.

Bourbon Old Fashioned

As it gets cold outside when you're out in the elements, a Bourbon Old Fashioned is a delicious evening option for sitting by the campfire and slowly indulging sip by sip. With a flavour hit of bourbon, bitters and orange it makes for a perfect option for warming up from the inside.

Now, of course, this is just a beginning. Your camping cocktail options can get as creative as your imagination. Cocktail Collective's subscription boxes make it easier than ever to take DIY cocktails on all sorts of adventures.

Take a box or two on your next trip and you'll wonder why you never thought of camping cocktails before.
