Devils Backbone

Tis’ the season, am I right? Devils Backbone is a brewery out of Virginia, who recently launched a canned cocktail line. To smooth the transition from summer to fall they sent me everything (literally) that I needed for the perfect picnic! Check out this amazing picnic blanket and all the ingredients for an adult s’mores pairing.

So what all did they send me for the perfect picnic (that you can easily put together too):


Picnic Blanket
Orange mini cooler (like the old playmate ones we all have)
A mini grill to roast my marshmallows over (plus the goods to make a flame)
Skewers for the marshmallows
Chocolate bars (classic Hershey’s & a dark chocolate with orange peel)
Graham crackers
Marshmallows (classic Jet-Puff plus a pre-roasted pack of vanilla marshmallows)
Glasses for my cocktails
A mini cutting board + knife
Orange and limes
Cute hats that say “ready to drink” (the theme of these CANNED cocktails)
Mason jar tea-lights (mini string of lights that are solar powered)
Straws
AND THE MAIN EVENT: the canned cocktails!
Orange Smash (which is my current favorite), vodka, orange and other citrus juices. It’s 10% ABV, so be careful!
Vodka Mule – yep, you guessed it, vodka, natural ginger & elderflower (7.5% ABV)

Ok, so you can see that they clearly thought about every detail to properly launch this cocktail and give me the best picnic experience! The weather is perfect for picnics right now and I highly recommend you check out their ready to drink canned cocktails. I brought them over to my girlfriends place last night for Wine Wednesday (we made pizza and it was actually Tuesday, lol). After we ate we went across the street to build a fire. We ate s’mores and drank the cocktails, and if you read all the above then you know I was sipping on the Orange Smash, my girlfriend Nellie was loving the Vodka Mule! Give them a try and let me know in the comments what you thought!
