Drinks With Mr. Draper

If you know me or my husband, you know we enjoy an adult beverage in the evenings. Whether it be a beer, a fishbowl glass of wine, or a cocktail...we sit on the couch and relax. Like I mentioned the other day, we love Mad Men! This weekend we watched quite a bit as we didn't want to go out and spend any money, so date night in for us! Since we began watching, Tony mentions he wants to try an old fashioned cocktail, so the other day we went went to BJ's and he ordered it and loved it.
such a handsome stud he is ;)
Being the good wife that I am, I pick up the ingredients for said drink, grabbed a small bowl of honey roasted peanuts {like a true bar/pub} and there we were, enjoying a cocktail with Mr. Don Draper.
2oz. Whiskey
1.5 tsp simple syrup
3 shakes of Angostura bitters
garnish with a maraschino cherry & an orange slice
I never thought I would be a whiskey drinker, but it is definitely growing on me. I am certainly a fan of this old fashioned cocktail. Anyone out there ever try it? Any other female out there a fan of whiskey?? Please tell me I am not the only female that has 'old man' tendencies. Cheers!

My husband is quite the whiskey connoisseur, he started with old fashioneds and it turned in quite the hobby for him. Looks yummy!

I definitely love me some whiskey! More so than my husband...but that is because we had a "rough" night and 2 bottles of Jack Daniel's Honey Whiskey later...well...I'll leave it at that...

There is a whiskey/burger/beer bar in Berkeley that's awesome!
