So, grab your mule mug or rocks glass, and let’s dive into making the Campfire Mule – a cocktail that strikes the perfect balance between smoky, spicy, and sweet.

  • Start with a mule mug or rocks glass filled with ice.
  • Pour 1 1/2 oz of bourbon into the glass.
  • Add 1/4 oz of Lakanto sugar-free maple syrup.
  • Now, pour in 4 oz of the ginger beer.
  • To balance the flavors, squeeze in 1/2 oz of lemon juice.
  • Give it all a gentle stir to let those flavors mingle.
  • And now – top off your Campfire Mule with a handful of sugar-free marshmallows, I like to toast them either with a cooking torch or on the stove.

The Toast: To truly capture the essence of a campfire, we’ll lightly toast those marshmallows. You can either do this over a stovetop or, if you’re feeling adventurous, whip out your handy kitchen torch. Watch as the marshmallows take on a golden hue, infusing your cocktail with a subtle smokiness that complements the spicy ginger beer and the sweetness of the maple syrup.

And there you have it – a low sugar, low carb, spicy, smoky, and sweet Campfire Mule, perfect for those cozy holiday evenings or any time you want to treat yourself to a unique and satisfying cocktail. So, go ahead, gather your friends, and raise your glasses for a cheers that’s as warm as a crackling campfire. Enjoy responsibly, and have a fantastic weekend!
