Mixology Renaissance in NYC

Today, we are experiencing a cocktails renaissance throughout the country, especially in New York City. No longer content with old standards like the gin and tonic or margaritas, people are turning to "mixology bars" that feature fresh ingredients, high-end spirits and an attention to minute details when creating concoctions. Patrons are flocking to Milk & Honey, Apotheke, Employees Only and a host of other "old school" bars for their takes on classic cocktails. It should be noted that Mad Men stars John Hamm (Don Draper) and John Slattery (Roger Sterling) have visited the Employees Only bar and, bartenders there will show you how to make a Manhattan like Draper does.

So, that's one way to learn how to mix it up like the pros. Another, and possibly more fun, way is to win our "Toast to Mad Men" Facebook contest. You simply vote on your favorite Mad Men themed drink and recipe. Everyone who votes is automically entered to win! And the prize? Two passes to the Institute of Culinary Education’s “Mad Men Cocktails Class” on August 23 at 8pm!  Trivia note: We chose seven since this is the seventh, and final, season of Mad Men.

Good luck! Now…where's our muddler?
