50's atomic home

Or, that which leads me to be the most covetous of all- the most recent issue of Covet Garden (thank, you sara louise!!)

The 'entertaining' section even has a diagram for folding won tons.

And, here is some inspiration for your very own mid century cocktail hour, all from etsy:

retro drinking glasses at cherryrivers

mid century ice bucket at retrotreasurehunters

vintage glass cocktail pitcher from velvetandshag

mid century lowball glasses at theelmsvintage
*** And, why not serve a Greyhound or Salty Dog in your new highball glass?

For a Greyhound:
Mix 2oz vodka with 5oz grapefruit juice (ice cold and freshly squeezed, if at all possible)
Garnish with ice, a juicy lime wedge, and a sprinkle of raw sugar
So tasty!

For a Salty Dog:
Mix 2oz gin with 5oz grapefruit juice grapefruit juice (ditto on the cold and squeezie)
Garnish with ice, lime and serve in a salt rimmed glass
