I was recently asked to create a cocktail using only three ingredients and something you can drink while camping. When I thought about camping, some of the fondest memories I had was at night around the campfire toasting marshmallows and everyone bonding over stories. I wanted to recreate that experience in a cocktail and came up with the “Campfire Cocoa”. Enjoy!







-1 1/2oz Plantation Pineapple Rum

-1 1/2oz Finest Call Single Pressed Lime Juice

-1 1/2oz Bacon Maple Syrup

Procedure: Combine ingredients in a mixing tin with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled coupe glass.

Garnish: Fresh lime wheel, bacon strip & bacon bits.


Bacon Maple Syrup: In a large saucepan cook 4 strips of apple wood smoked bacon. Place cooked bacon on a plate with paper towels. Allow the paper towels to absorb the excess grease and oil. Then place the 4 strips of cooked bacon in a sealed mason jar with 24oz of simple syrup and let it infuse at room temperature for 24 hours. Then remove the cooked bacon and fine strain syrup through a cheese cloth several times and store in your favorite syrup dispenser with equal parts bacon syrup and maple syrup.






-1 1/2oz Gray Whale Gin

-1oz FInest Call Blue Curaçao

-2oz Sprite

Procedure: Combine ingredients in a metal tin with no ice. Roll cocktail over a large rocks glass with ice.

Garnish: Fresh cucumber slices and a pinch of ground Himalayan Pink Salt.


This cocktail was created for the West Palm Beach Boat Show where we featured it on one of the days and was a surprise hit. It was amazing how many people kept coming back for another one and they kept mentioning how surprised they were that the main spirit was Gin! ;-)
