It is one of those television nights my husband and I look forward to all year. The “Mad Men” season premiere is tonight. As a result, a 1960s-inspired drink is on our list for tonight. And so is Peggy Olson – I think she is the one to watch this season.
In season one’s episode eleven, Peggy is seen ordering a brandy alexander on a blind date. Her disappointment with the drink has been rectified by my recipe. Slightly less brandy will make it sweeter – perhaps just the way she likes it (and just the way Joan orders it for Peggy).
We’ll be watching Mad Men tonight too! That Brandy Alexander looks like the perfect drink for the occasion, too.
Watching Mad Men is only complete with a cocktail in hand! 😀
have only seen the mad men piloti–can you believe? But understand it’s amazing. Brandy Alex is one of my favorites–yours looks delish! Though I’ll always go with ice cream, which I think makes it dessert 😉
Lots of time to catch up…that is if you have ‘that time’! You won’t regret it, promise! A Brandy Alexander dessert is right up my alley too! An ice cream version, I’m thinking! 🙂
