Refreshing Summer Cocktails Made Easy

Refreshing Summer Cocktails Made Easy

Happy Summer everyone! We are definitely in the thick of some hazy, hot, and humid weather this week. It’s the perfect time to make a quenching and refreshing summer cocktail. It’s so nice to have an easy drink alternative with Camp Craft Cocktails. My friend Cara turned me on to this brand of cocktails and after researching the company for Piper and Dune I didn’t hesitate to order a small assortment. Fast forward a couple months and we now carry the full line - they are so delicious and popular!

About The Company

Camp Craft Cocktails known as “Camp,” began with popsicles, a 1969 camper food truck, and a cross country road trip. After towing thousands of their handcrafted Bold City Pops in their vintage camper to the 2016 Desert Trip music festival in California, Suzanah Raffield and Rhonda Stringfellow knew they wanted to build even more community, so they deconstructed favorite pop recipes to pivot toward a shippable product. The concept of working in community was ignited during their years as camp staff. Distilling down all that they loved from their tenure as camp directors to the perfect name and mission for their business, Camp Craft Cocktails was born on I-10, with flavors that beg to be shared, and a soul for creating community.

The Product

Each mason jar is filled with dehydrated fruits and herbs, non-gmo vegan cane sugar and whatever else the recipe calls for. These drink mixes will sit on your shelf for two years, so feel free to keep them on hand to use whenever you feel the desire for something a little different. What I love is the flexibility of each of the flavors to make different variations of the basic recipe. Here’s a couple of recipes to wet your appetite!

P.S. our Silipint silicone beverage cups have just been restocked and they are perfect to use at the beach, poolside or outside because they can’t break. Put them in the microwave, the dishwasher and even put hot or cold drinks inside. They have an optional lid too.
