Celebrate the return of ‘Mad Men’ with these Draper drinks
Tuning in this Sunday? Make sure you have one of these fancy cocktails at the ready.
The Betty Draper
Find it at: L’Amant
235 W. 12th St., 646-476-8731
The sleek, dimly-lit French bistro is the perfect backdrop for a drink as beautiful as January Jones. The cocktail is a blend of Citadelle Gin, Calvados Drouin Selection, celery and lime juice, apple syrup and a dash of celery bitters.
The Behind Sterling’s Back
Find it at: Black Hound Bar & Lounge
301 South End Ave., 212-945-0562
Sidle up to the bar at this speakeasy and order up this take an Old Fashioned, a sturdy mix of Rye, Amaro Montenegro and Luxardo.
The Don Draper
Find it at: The Carnegie Club, 156 W. 56th St., 212-957-9676
Indoor smoking — not that we recommend it — is still OK at this classic haunt, which is hosting a viewing party with a full “Mad Men”-inspired menu. While there (in your 1960s best, natch), sip on The Don Draper: a mix of gin, sweet vermouth and pineapple juice — though this is probably the last time we’ll ever associate the man with being sweet.
Whiskey Park, 100 Central Park S., 212-307-9222
It only makes sense that a bar with “whiskey” in its name would host a “Mad Men” party on Sunday, complete with a trivia contest. Dress to impress in your finest ’60s garb and order up the Midnight Manhattan, a Pete Campbell-inspired bourbon drink sure to land you any deal (or lady).
