Hmm, what to serve on New Year’s Eve? How about these Mad Men cocktails? Take the cue from Don Draper, Betty Francis or Joan Holloway with these three retro-inspired cocktails, just the thing to see the new year in with a bang!
Don Draper Old-Fashioned
To start, place a sugar cube in the bottom of a rocks glass and wet it down with 3 drops of Angostura bitters and a splash of soda. Muddle the cube and swirl the glass to line the bottom. Add a large ice cube and 2 shots of rye whiskey.
Garnish with a lemon zest and maraschino cherry.
Betty Francis Gimlet
Fill a shaker with ice. Add 1 3/4 shots of vodka, a shot of fresh lime juice and a shot of sugar syrup. Shake and strain into a martini glass.
Garnish with a single mint leaf.
Joan Holloway Sidecar
Add ice to a shaker. Top with 1 shot of Hennessy VS, 1 shot of Mickey Finn’s and one shot of fresh lime juice. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass.
Garnish half the rim of the glass with a chili, sugar, cinnamon and salt mixture.
