There are only a couple more weekends left for the summer and I’m holding on for dear life! Anyone else having an amazing summer? There’s no better way to keep summer going than by having a beach bonfire with friends and family. 

This weekend I got together with some family and a couple of friends to enjoy a beautiful summer night at the beach. I think everyone in San Diego had the same idea because it was packed. But we got lucky and found a spot. Yay!

Beach Bonfire Must-Haves


With summer coming to an end, the evenings are starting to cool off quicker. We have been having some pretty warm weather in San Diego, but as soon as that sun sets it cools off quick. 

Beach Bonfire Must-Haves

Butter Chardonnay & JaM Cabernet

JaM Cellars makes three delicious, everyday California wines Butter Chardonnay, JaM Cabernet, and Toast Sparkling. These are perfect to bring to your bonfire because not only do they have such amazing flavor, but they are under $20 (find a store near you).

Fire Wood

Don’t forget some fire wood and not the kind from the grocery store. If you have some extra pallets then chop those up. You can also search online for fire wood in your area and find people giving it away for free. 🙂


No bonfire is complete without a favorite summer treat like s’mores. Pair it with the Butter Chardonnay for a creamy-licious, melts in your mouth experience.

Beach Bonfire Must-HavesI’ll have to say though Cab is my JaM! With the sweet notes of blackberries, black plums, black currant, Cassis and more-this is an easy to love JaM Cab. I’m not even really a Cab drinker but I was seriously taken back with how unique the taste was. It also has a lingering vanilla finish that goes perfect with s’mores.

Good Company

Always surrounding yourself with good company can really make your evening perfect. Laughing, telling stories, and reminiscing about the summer with really add the perfect end of summer vibes.

    All must haves for sure! I need to try that wine — I’m not much of a drinker, but I’ll try anything once.

    S’mores and a bonfire is one of the best things about summer! This post makes me want to hold onto summer a little bit longer.

    Oh i just love beach bonfires! It was something that we did in the summers when I was younger and I have such great memories.

  11. September 18, 2017 / 8:12 PM

    This looks like such a fun evening. I’m just realizing now that I went through the entire summer without having a s’more! I’ve got 2 days to fix that haha
