Mad Men fans, we give you our shoulder to cry on, as we know how difficult the next week will be…we are here for you. For 8 long years you’ve remained dedicated to what some call one of the best feature shows in US history. Through the alcohol, drugs, sex, scandals, alcohol and alcohol, you’ve seen just about everything. Did we mention alcohol?
So this one goes out to you, the loyalists. From AMC to TiVo and Netflix to Sky+, we come together from across the world to say our goodbyes in a way so wonderfully suitable, it makes us nothing but proud.
With the help of Bombay Sapphire, we’ve put together two ridiculously good cocktails to help tame the tears and make the most out of your season finale. Ladies and Gentlemen, we salute you for your efforts, get your ice and cocktail shaker at the ready and enjoy the show with the best god damn tribute there is.
Do you fancy yourself a Roger Sterling, enjoying the finer things in life with an afternoon Bombay Martini?
Make It Yourself:
1 ½ parts Bombay Sapphire Gin
A whisper of Martini & Rossi vermouth
Chill chose Martini Glass. Fill the glass half of the shaker with ice, coat the inside of the glass shaker with vermouth, discard the ice and vermouth and refill with ice, pour in Bombay Sapphire holding the base of glass shaker, stir, pour into a martini glass. Garnish with an olive or twist.
Sip like the stealth Henry Francis, who enjoys this simple, yet bitter cocktail as he plans his client’s next political maneuver.
Make It Yourself:
3 oz. Bombay Sapphire Gin
3 oz. Campari
3 oz Martini & Rossi vermouth
Slice of orange, halved
Combine gin, Campari, and vermouth in a large tumbler. Fill two glasses with ice, pour half of the negroni into each, and garnish with half the orange slice.
