Barbara Oh Barbara

Barbara Stanwyck is a iconic actor from the 30s and 40s whose characters varied in different portrayals of modern women. Her characters still slap which is why every Christmas I find myself watching her movie Christmas in Connecticut and having a good giggle. In honor of her, I have created a few cocktails that I think you should try at your next cocktail hour. I find pairing them with the movie even better.
