These frosty sips have made appearances in past seasons along with Martinis, Manhattans, Old-Fashioneds, and Stingers. Really any cold cocktail will suffice when throwing a Mad Men premier party. Just be sure to put out some Utz potato chips in your chip-and-dip serving set, a few bowls of bar nuts, and for a little added flare, packs of candy cigarettes.
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
3/4 ounce Cointreau
1 1/2 ounce Cognac
Lemon wedge and sugar, for rim, optional
Garnish could also be lemon twist
If you prefer the traditional sugar-rimmed glass, run the
wedge of lemon around the edge of a martini glass to moisten. Dip the rim into sugar.
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the freshly squeezed lemon juice, the Cointreau and the Cognac. Shake until well chilled. Strain into the the martini glass and enjoy.
