Camp Cocktail: High 'n Rye

Camp Cocktail: High 'n Rye

There is nothing we enjoy more than passing around a tasty adult beverage while chilling with friends at the campfire.

If you thought eating in the outdoors was fun, wait until you get a taste of what our friends at Wild Craft are mixing up in the boozy beverage department.

The “High ‘n Rye” is a strong and flavorful drink that’s well-suited for sipping out of a flask or camp cup. The idea behind this new camp cocktail is it’s super easy to whip up with just few resources. Simply mix the ingredients in a cup and it’s ready to pour into a portable vessel, so you can hit the trail. It's also something that you can make fireside, put in a few ice cubes, and toss in a fresh lemon peel. If you are someone that enjoys a manhattan or old fashioned, this is the drink for you!
