Roasted marshmallows, curled up friends, horror stories, and a master mixologist at work- a typical scene at most campfires. Campfire slings are an ideal cocktail for your next camping venture this autumn. This cocktail is a quirky mix of maple syrup, rye whisky and chocolate.
60 ml rye whiskey
8 ml pure maple syrup
3 dashes of chocolate bitters
A mixing spoon
An Old Fashioned glass
A flamed orange twist for garnish
The above measures are indicative of a single serving.
Then you have to…
Take an Old Fashioned glass and combine all the ingredients. Add a large chunk of ice. Stir it with a mixing spoon and garnish with the orange twist.
Sip on servings of Campfire Slings galore!
