Miracle on 34th Street (initially released as The Big Heart in the UK) is a 1947 American Christmas film released by 20th Century Fox.
It stars Maureen O’Hara, John Payne, Natalie Wood, and Edmund Gwenn. The story takes place between Thanksgiving and Christmas Day in New York city, and focuses on the effect of a department store Santa Claus who claims to be the real Santa. The film has become a perennial Christmas favourite.
It is also the inspiration for our friendly mixologist Hank Hughes-Lundy’s festive cocktail – check out our video below – which uses the following ingredients:
50ml 68 Spirits gin
10ml cinnamon gomme
10ml gingerbread gomme
4 dashes citric acid solution
