With A Kick!

Monday I shared some non-alcoholic punches from Ocean Spray's 1971 booklet Mix Around With Cranberry Juice. Indeed, most of the recipes in the booklet are alcohol-free, a fact which didn't go unnoticed by a 1971 reviewer, who huffed that there were no recipes with hooch. (See? I RESEARCH these things!) But he was mistaken. Ocean Spray didn't forget the inebriates! Here are some of their selections, including one that's "A Ladies Day Special," and another with "All the fresh excitement of the sea." What more could you want?!

Are they implying that Tom Collins isn't likeable?

I always suspected that the fresh excitement of the sea came on a wave of rum.
