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


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


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.
