Mad Men Cocktails 01

 Mad Men returns this Sunday (AMC at 9/8c) with a special 2-hour premiere. Is the honeymoon over for Mr. and Mrs. Draper? Is Peggy better off now that she’s left Sterling Cooper? Is Roger still tripping? We need answers. We need a drink!

Mix up one of these retro libations and join us. 

Whiskey, bourbon, rum — you name it, Don Draper (Jon Hamm) has knocked it back, but his signature cocktail is the classic Old Fashion.

Don’s Old Fashioned


• 1 1/2 oz. Jim Beam Bourbon

• 2 dashes bitters dissolved in water

• 1/2 teaspoon sugar

Preparation: In an old-fashioned glass, combine sugar and bitters. Add bourbon and ice, and stir gently. Garnish with a cherry and an orange slice.

Next: Trouble in Paradise?
