Mad Men Cocktail

The fifth season of AMC’s Mad Men premieres on Sunday night with the usual cast of hard-drinking ad execs in the 1960s. For a Mad Men–themed viewing party, we offer an old-fashioned (below), which is Don Draper’s drink of choice.

Recipe: Old-Fashioned

1 sugar cube
3 dashes Angostura bitters
1 tablespoon club soda
2 ounces bourbon
1 thin strip of lemon peel

In a rocks glass, combine the sugar cube, bitters and club soda. Muddle to a paste. Stir in the bourbon. Add ice and garnish with a two-inch strip of lemon peel.
