Sunday marks the return of one of MC's favorite TV shows Mad Men and we hope that you, like us, will be celebrating the Season 6 premiere in style. There's never been a better occasion to don some gem tones, accessorize with the appropriate brooch, and give your best bouffant a go. But what would a Mad Men watch-party be without the cocktails? Granted, we can't throw back a tumbler of straight whiskey à la Don Draper, but we can sip on a this perfectly-stirred beverage, courtesy of Havana Central, in a way that would make Joan Holloway quite proud.
Birds of Paradise
2 oz. Don Julio Blanco
2 oz. passion fruit puree
1 wheel lime, freshly squeezed (juice only)
Spanish Chambord liquor
In a mixing glass, add Don Julio, passion fruit puree, fresh squeezed lime wheel, and ice (fold and squeeze a lime wheel into the mixing glass). Shake hard. Rim a chilled martini glass with sugar. Strain into a martini glass. Sink Chambord to the bottom of the glass by pouring from the side of the glass. Garnish with lime wheel or orange wedge.
Don't miss the Mad Men Season 6 premiere this Sunday at 9 p.m. EST on AMC.
