It is that time of year when the great debate ensues- Is Die Hard a Christmas movie or not? We are firmly in the HELL YES camp here at Make & Muddle. This classic Bruce Willis movie has all the things we look for in a classic- ex wives, evil geniuses, and a great tag line!
Our first cocktail, Nakatomi Punch, includes not one, but TWO of our products, 7 Syrup and Orange Ginger Cranberry Shrub. The combination of the bourbon, red wine, and these two products creates Christmas in a cup, and I’ve included batching measurements to fill your biggest punch bowl! Beautiful red color, AMAZING deep flavors, and all without bloodshed. #yipeekiyaymotherfucker
1.5 oz Bourbon (batch 12.75 oz)

.25 oz Lemon juice (batch “to taste”)

Orange Ginger Cranberry Cheeseball
8 oz Cream cheese, room temp
.25 c Orange Ginger Cranberry Shrub
4 oz Shredded gouda cheese
.75 c Walnut pieces, toasted and lightly salted
Zest from half an orange
In a food processor, add the first four ingredients. Process until smooth. Remove from the bowl with a spatula and form into a ball on a piece of parchment paper. Refrigerate for 30 min. Remove from the fridge and adjust the shape if needed. Roll in the walnut pieces. This can also be served as a cheese spread. Simply serve it in your favorite bowl. You can add the walnuts to the spread or omit them, whatever your preference. Serve with your favorite crackers.
