Mid-Century Merry Makers Christmas CocktailsA Christmas Story Ovaltini
Ralphie was a big fan of Ovaltine in A Christmas Story. Us grown-ups will like this version — an Ovaltine Martini, or just call it, an Ovaltini! Serve in a martini glass.
  • 1 part Kahlua
  • 2 parts vodka
  • 1 part cream

Moisten the rim of a martini glass with honey. Place some Ovaltine on a plate or in a glass rimmer. Turn the glass upside down and turn in the Ovaltine, rimming the glass.

  • Combine the Kahlua and vodka in the glass.
  • Carefully pour the cream on top. If you’d like to try and layer the cream, pour it over the back of a spoon.
  • Add a large pinch of Ovaltine and enjoy!
Mid-Century Merry Makers Christmas CocktailsChristmas Punch
Christmas Punch is a favorite of mine since I have a vintage punch bowl from the 1940s  that was my Mothers. This punch is light and fresh with cranberries, oranges, and pomegranates. Keep it non-alcoholic with ginger ale or add rum or vodka for extra holiday spirit!
  • 1 orange sliced
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 2 cup cranberry juice
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 2 cups Ginger Ale
  • 1 cup white rum optional
  • Rosemary for garnish
  • Ice
Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher or punch bowl over ice. If using a really large punch bowl, you can double the recipe. Add orange slices and cranberries to float on top, serve in a pretty punch bowl.
