Camp Awesome Cocktail Hour

Cocktail hour. A daily adult ritual in Camp Awesome that generally occurs between the hours of 3 and 6pm, although it has definitely been known to start earlier and finish later!

With cocktail hour in mind, we’ve included three essential cocktail components in our Camp Awesome pack: Four Pillars gin, Campari and Dolin vermouth. And while together these three will create the foundations for an epic Negroni, the possibilities for creating a range of classic cocktails using just one or two of these components is huge. In the event you’re on holidays for longer than a week, we’ve included basic recipes for seven of our favourite cocktails below, in order to keep things interesting – and don’t worry if you need to swap out the glassware for disposable cups. Bottoms up!
