Mad Men returns on AMC tonight and along with it, an excuse for a smart cocktail.

You could really get into the mood and stick with the traditional Tom Collins (made with gin from Rehorst of course), or you could tart it up a bit with the recipes below, provided by former podcast guests Chad Doll of Bryant’s Cocktail Lounge and Nick Kosevich and Ira Koplowitz, collectively known as Bittercube.

TCD reminds you to enjoy responsibly and use local ingredients where possible.
