'Mad Men' Vodka Gimlet
If you like old fashioned drinks or want to throw a 1950s or 1960s-style party, make the perfect vodka gimlet with this 'Mad Men' Vodka Gimlet recipe. A favorite of character Betty Draper's from 'Mad Men,' this recipe is from New York's '21' Club.
The drink was created using gin and Rose’s Lime Juice. If you switch to fresh lime juice, you’ll need to add simple syrup to balance the tartness of the limes.
