Scariest Vintage Recipes #2: Santa's Nightcap

This is again one of those vintage recipes where I think they used whatever was left in the publisher's test kitchen.  I wouldn't want to see what Santa would leave if you left him this recipe...

 From December 21, 2009:
This photo and recipe is from the 1970 Ladies' Home Journal Handbook of Holiday Cuisine. There are lots of weird gems in this one. This doll picture freaked me out, though. She looks scared to be served those mincemeat pies - as I would be!

Or maybe she had some of this...

Santa's Nightcap

1 cup gin

1 cup light rum

1/4 cup lime juice

1/4 cup maple blended syrup (I'm not kidding!)

Combine 1 cup gin, 1 cup light rum and 1/4 cup each lime juice and maple blended syrup. Stir well to mix; pour over crushed ice in cocktail glasses. Makes 2 1/2 cups.

Wow. Don't light any candles around that drink!
