On January 15 (this Friday!), Disney+ releases the first 2 episodes of the much-anticipated Marvel miniseries, WandaVision. Here’s what we know so far: It’s based on 2 badass characters in the Marvel Universe, Scarlet Witch and Vision, and follows the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019). Promotional posters released in December 2019 hinted the series would time-jump many decades, from the 1950s through the 2000s. So cool. Let’s start with the 1950s. Here are 10 cocktails popular in the 1950s — or drinks that remind us of Marvel characters —  to set the scene for your WandaVision premiere.

Tom Collins

Gin was big in the 1950s, due to people wanting to get their drink on post-Prohibition, and drinks like the Tom Collins started gaining more popularity. It’s a classic cocktail to have memorized and in your drink toolkit. Even better, with only 3 ingredients, you can make this as you’re signing into Disney+.

Mint Julep

Evocative of tipsy women in fancy hats from decades gone by, the mint julep is a retro classic. Use the freshest mint for the tastiest outcome. We love a refreshing bourbon drink!

Here’s another simple drink with just 4 ingredients that you can whip up in a matter of minutes, even between Disney+ commercials. Don’t have sugar cubes? If you’ve got simple syrup on hand, feel free to use that in place of the sugar cube and water.

In 1950s America, tiki drinks were all the rage. This sweet, juicy and pretty vodka-based beverage is perfect for celebrating the premiere of WandaVision.

A tiki staple! The tropical, refreshing Mai Tai may look intimidating because of its layered colors, garnishes and ingredient list — but you’ve got to make one if you never have.

Classic Piña Colada

With beautiful layers of vodka, lemonade, and red wine, we think Vision can absolutely en-vision himself mixing these up on a hot summer day.
