3 Cocktails Worthy Of A Celebratory Mad Men Marathon



2UPDATE: This story was originally published on March 31.

The Mad Men hiatus has been rough on all of us (most especially John Hamm's, er, manhood), but now the wait is finally over. Come next Sunday, Don Draper, Pete Campbell, and the rest of the Sterling Cooper gang will be back in your living room, smoking cigs and drinking scotch. To commemorate the occasion, we couldn't think of any better way than by mixing up some '60s-inspired cocktails. So, we turned to Mia Johansson and Pam Wiznitzer, two ace NYC bartenders, to hook us up with some Mad Men-inspired sippers. Drink at your own risk.

To infuse the scotch, soak with four to five tea bags for 10 minutes. Mix all ingredients except Champagne in a punch bowl. Ladle into tea cups leaving enough room to top with Champagne. Finish with a touch of grated nutmeg.
