Nothing celebrates the new season of "Mad Men" (coming March 25) like a classic martini — made with gin, easy on the vermouth.

Ingredients

  • Ice
  • 2 1/2 ounce gin
  • 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
  • 2 Green olives

Preparation

Step 1:

  • In an old fashioned glass, combine the sugar, 1 cherry, 1 orange slice, the bitters and the soda water.

Step 2:

  • Muddle the ingredients together in the glass until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add the rye and a couple ice cubes. Garnish with the remaining cherry and orange slice.
