Camper English gives us Fall Sunshine

camper-englishThis post is a part of a series that will profile participants in the Hiram Walker Gingerbread Cocktail Competition and their drink entries. The winner of the contest will be announced the week of Thanksgiving.


If you are at all in-tune with cocktail blogs and/or the San Francisco drinks scene, chances are you’ve already heard of spirits writer Camper English and his booze blog Alcademics. One of the most frequently-updated blogs on my reading list, Alcademics provides clever commentary on the drinks industry, new brands, upcoming events and more.


Despite recently labeling himself a bar (pre)tender , I think Camper holds his own with his contribution to the Hiram Walker Gingerbread Cocktail Competition, Fall Sunshine.

Fall Sunshine by Camper English:


2 ounces Hornitos Anejo tequila

1 ounce Hiram Walker Gingerbread liqueur

¼ ounce Cointreau Noir

¾ ounce orange juice


Combine ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Shake thoroughly. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice.


A blend of the Cointreau we all know and Remy Martin cognac, Cointreau Noir sounds perfect for the fall/holiday season, and seems like it would pair quite well with the vanilla and spice of the Gingerbread Liqueur. Don’t forget to check in here Monday to see if Fall Sunshine takes the top prize!
