Mad Men: A Party!

It recently came to our attention that several of our friends have December/January birthdays. Naturally, there was only one thing to do about this…have a massive Mad Men themed birthday bash. My wonderful friend Lana hosted the party on Saturday and it was a smashing success. There was food, beverages and lots of celebrating…IMG_2226_fotorGuests got complimentary cigarettes and there was a lemon chiffon cake which I can’t talk about because it was so good.

1Mad-Men-Christmas-Party I may have done a Lady Gaga impersonation and there might be a bootleg video of this floating around – but this is all speculation. It was such a good party that I may have also had to remove my high heels.IMG_2203_fotor_fotor_fotorI love a good party and it is even better when you can celebrate with a crowd of such cool cats. Also, if you came here looking for a recipe – here you go:

MANHATTAN

  • 2 Fluid oz. Whiskey (I prefer Bulliet)
  • 1/2 oz. Sweet Vermouth
  • 1 Dash Bitters
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1 Maraschino cherry

Place ice in a mixing glass. Pour in vermouth, then whiskey, and stir. Strain into a cocktail glass. Add a dash of bitters and garnish with a cherry.
