mad men manhattan

It's been 17 months since Mad Men last aired and I cannot wait for the new season to premiere on March 25th!  While I won't be dolled up in full sixties style while watching the show, I will get into the spirit by having a Manhattan in hand (recipe below).

Mad Men Manhattan
2 oz blended whiskey
1/2 oz sweet vermouth
1/2 oz dry vermouth
1 dash bitters

Swirl with ice to chill, pour into a cocktail glass, and garnish with a maraschino cherry.

For those feeling wanting to be more social, here are some great resources for Mad Men themed parties.
This invite from CDesignIllustration is a sleek and retro way to set the tone for the event.

I love a good photo prop and these from Little Retreats and livelaughlovesots will help your guests get into character...especially after a few Manhattans.
