Campfire Cocktail Ingredients

Campfire Cocktail raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 0.5 ounce of grenadine
  • 0.5 ounce of tart cherry juice
  • 0.5 ounce of pineapple juice
  • 1 ounce of white rum
  • 1 ounce of peach nectar
  • 2 ounces of Fireball cinnamon whisky
  • Ice cubes (enough for cocktail shaker and glass)

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

PEACH NECTAR: If you can’t find peach nectar at the store, peach syrup works equally well in this cocktail recipe.

How to Make This Campfire Cocktail Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Chill all ingredients prior to making to help keep the ice from melting.

STEP ONE: Add the grenadine to the glass, then fill the glass with ice.

STEP TWO: Fill the cocktail shaker halfway with ice. 

STEP THREE: Add the cherry juice, pineapple juice, and rum to the cocktail shaker, then pour the rum mixture gently over the ice.

PRO TIP:

To help achieve a layered effect, you can pour cocktail components over the back of a spoon into the glass in steps 3 and 4.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: These cocktails need to be enjoyed immediately upon making them. As they sit, the ice will melt, and they will not keep the same consistency.

IN THE FREEZER: We don’t recommend freezing this campfire Fireball cocktail. It is best made fresh.

With simple ingredients and plenty of vibrant colors that will remind you of glowing embers in a campfire, this delightful cocktail is a fruity and tasty choice at the end of the day. Curl up in the great outdoors or cozy inside to sip away.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I make this ahead of time?

This recipe is best enjoyed right away as the ice will begin to melt and change the consistency of the drink.

What is the best glass to use for this cocktail?

This summer cocktail recipe will be fine in any glasses you have on hand. We made it in a lowball glass, but a taller glass or one with a fun shape would also be a great choice.

Can I use a different type of rum in this cocktail?

You could certainly substitute whatever rum you have on hand. Keep in mind that a darker rum will alter the “campfire” effect. Try Malibu rum for a tropical twist.

    This version would be a nice refreshing drink for a hot summer day/night…But for the winter – I would swap out the tart cherry to pomegranate juice and maybe swap out the pineapple to a crips tart orange juice….
    Anyway, the is an interesting drink that I would surely be having this up coming summer…😉🍹
