Whether you love to hate him or hate to love him, Don Draper has been firmly planted in our pop culture psyche for the better part of a decade. As the phenomenon that is “Mad Men” draws to a close, I offer a toast. Cheers to the man who reaffirmed there’s nothing more handsome than a gentleman in a well-tailored suit drinking an Old Fashioned. Here’s my version.
2 oz Hudson Baby Bourbon Whiskey
2 dashes aromatic bitters
1 orange slice
1 lemon wedge
1 sugar cube
In a rocks glass dissolve sugar cube with bitters and a bit of water. Fill glass with ice. Add cherry, orange slice and lemon wedge. Pour in bourbon and stir gently before serving.
