The season premier of Mad Men
is this Sunday. And to honor the hard drinking cast, Canadian Club has put together a menu of classic, and updated classic, cocktails to fit their personalities.
It's the perfect excuse to get everyone together, turn on Draper and the rest of the crew, and drink like Mad Men.
Don Draper: Old Fashioned Cocktail
Don keeps his drink classic with the Old Fashioned Canadian Club Cocktail.
In a short wide-mouthed tumbler:
Place a lump of sugar, to which add as much Angostura Bitters as the lump will absorb.
Then dissolve the lump of sugar in a little water.
Nearly fill the tumbler with small ice cubes.
Add a wine-glass full of Canadian Club 12 year Reserve whisky.
Add a twisted lemon peel.
Betty Draper: CC Cosmopolitan
Her edgy attitude and progressive ways make her perfect for the CC Cosmopolitan.
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice add:
2 parts Canadian Club Classic 12
1 part Cointreau
1 part Cranberry Juice
1 Twist of lime
Roger Sterling: The Millionaire’s Manhattan
You know you’ve made it with this cocktail. Sterling Cooper’s top exec would sip on nothing less.
1 part Harvey’s Bristol Cream
2 parts Canadian Club
Fill a lowball glass with ice and add ingredients.
Stir and garnish with maraschino cherry.
Joan Holloway: The Burgundy
This seductive and fiery red head is sweet and tart, just like the Burgundy.
1 1/2 parts Canadian Club
4 parts ginger ale
Splash of cranberry juice
