Gin Rickey

Hello from beautiful Smuggler's Notch in Jeffersonville, Vermont! This week I have teamed up with the folks that work for the resort to visit local sugar houses, enjoy the spring activities in the mountains and of course eat all the wonderful food in the area! 
But more on that later next week....  First we need to talk about Don Draper and the rest of the Mad Men crew. For those who don't know, this Sunday is not only Easter, it's the premier of the best damn TV show to ever hit cable.  To celebrate in true Mad Men style, I teamed up with ModCloth and a team of my favorite bloggers to share our favorite vintage recipes, lots of cocktails and of course some vintage fashion! 
Today, I am sharing my favorite classic cocktail, a Gin Rickey, it's low in calories and is quite refreshing. Snag that recipe and then to enter in our super awesome giveaway, follow the directions listed on the rafflecopter widget below. Make sure you comment below telling me who your favorite Mad Men character is! 

Gin Rickey 

Ingredients:
1-2 oz Gin ( I use Bombay) 
The juice of half a lime
Soda water (not sweetened or flavored!) 
Lime wedges for garnish
Directions:
Add the gin and lime juice to a high ball glass (or canning jar like me!) Fill glass with ice and then top off with soda water. Garnish with lime slices and then serve. 

To enter to win a $100 gift card to ModCloth, this vintage 4.5 qt mixing bowl, and this gorgeous martini glass follow the directions on the widget below! ALSO if you want to do some shopping now, Modcloth is offering $20 off of all new customers purchases over $100! For those of you not familiar with ModCloth, they have some of the coolest vintage inspired clothing. My favorite 1950's style dress is from them, and I wear it all the time with my favorite black flats.

  18. My favorite Mad Men character is my father. He was in the publishing biz in NYC for 50 years, and growing up during the 60s and going to visit him at the office -- it was a scene right out of Mad Men. That show is so authentic.
