You don’t have to be a James Bond to make this booze-y classic. This one’s as simple as it gets. Ice cold gin, a splash of sweet vermouth and some original (Blue Box) Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Shake and pour into an icey cold glass.

A twist on the classic. Instead of orange juice, use a full packet of Kraft cheese powder (it’s so much better!) top with champagne and ripe watermelon from your garden.
