To really celebrate the return of "Mad Men" we can't forget the Old Fashioned, ad exec Draper's drink of choice. This one's made with rye, the way Don did in season three's "My Old Kentucky Home," episode. We didn't vault over the bar counter to fix it, though.


  • 1 Cube (or 1 teaspoon) sugar
  • 2 Maraschino cherries
  • 2 Slices orange
  • 2 Dashes bitters
  • Splash of soda water
  • 2 ounce rye whiskey
  • Ice


Step 1:

  • In an old fashioned glass, combine the sugar, 1 cherry, 1 orange slice, the bitters and the soda water. Muddle the ingredients together in the glass until the sugar is completely dissolved.

Step 2:

  • Add the rye and a couple ice cubes. Garnish with the remaining cherry and orange slice.
