Mad Men is back for its 6th boozy season and has inspired another round of drinks from Brugal. Try this one.
The moment all Mad Men fans have been waiting for since last June has finally arrived with the buzzed-about Season Six premiere airing last night. While Sterling sips martinis and Don Draper knocks back a few Old Fashioneds this season, try your hand at mixing up your own classic Mad Men-inspired cocktail.
Offering a new twist on the classic Boulevardier, the aptly-named Man About Town cocktail swaps Brugal 1888 for bourbon and spices things up with Orange and Angostura bitters. Thanks to 1888’s dry flavor and double-aging process in American oak and sherry casks, the cocktail is balanced with a slight bitterness that one would expect from a Boulevardier.
