Mad Mad Men

In my inbox today:
Etsy Finds: Release Your Inner Mad Man
Which one are you? Peggy, Joan, Betty or Don?
Is anyone else as excited as I am for this Sunday??

For the occasion, sip on this:
Old Fashioned
2 ounces bourbon whisky
Splash of simple syrup or one sugar cube abd just enough water to dissolve the sugar
2 dashes of **bitters
Place sugar (or syrup), bitters and water in an old fashioned glass. Add 2-3 ice cubes and whisky. Garnish with and orange twist and cherry.
** A muddled orange slice can replace bitters. The cherry can also be muddled at the bottom of the glass.

....or my favorite as you should have guessed by now...
Gin and Tonic (or as I like to call it, Jen and Tonick)
A gin and tonic is a highball cocktail made with gin and tonic water, usually garnished with a slice of lime or lemon and often served over ice. The ratio of gin to tonic water can vary considerably, from a glass of gin with a splash of tonic to one part gin for every five parts tonic.
In some countries, gin and tonic is marketed pre-mixed in single-serving cans.

Season Premier Sunday August 16, on AMC at 10:00pm!!
