With another season of Mad Men starting up, w thought we’d dip in the archive and pull out some classic they’d be enjoying in the 1960s. Along with the hard drinking classics like Martinis and Manhattan’s, we see Vodka creeping onto the scene with the Moscow Mule and others. I choose a few tropical drinks, as the word is out that this season starts with a trip to Hawaii. All three drinks are Waikiki stalwarts with both the Tropical Itch and Blue Hawaii having been invented at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. The Mai Tai, though not originating in Hawaii, became synonymous with the islands.
