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).
