“Mad Men” Inspired Cocktails – Guest Post by Popsiculture

I was excited to have Angela from Popsiculture write a guest post for me!  We have known each other since high school and hands down, she knows more about pop culture than anyone I have ever met. You’ll want to make sure to check out Angela’s blog, here, so you can follow her too.  She also does freelance public relations and marketing and you can contact her through her site.  Thanks again, Angela, for writing this guest post!  These cocktails are perfect to sip while watching “Mad Men” on AMC – cheers!

The final episodes of “Mad Men” are now showing on Sunday nights on AMC.  “Mad Men” takes place in the 1960’s New York advertising world and specifically the Sterling Cooper agency and its many incarnations as the years go by.  Creative genius Don Draper is the center of the series and as you can guess he’s a complicated soul. 

 
I was late to the “Mad Men” party, but it’s a good one to be in attendance at, regardless of when you get there.  It’s smart, nostalgic, and really well written, so there are twists and turns you didn’t know existed on Madison Avenue. 

 

If you’ve got something to celebrate, or if you want to drown your sorrows knowing that Don Draper will never be in your life, ever again {don’t forget, there is streaming on Netflix, so you can re-watch any episodes you want,} here are a few of my favorite drink recipes, inspired by Sterling Cooper & Partners, or course.
