East Bombay Collins
MAD-MEN-CHRISTMAS-COMES-BUT-ONCE-A-YEAR-026

Happy Christmas to all who celebrate. Seems like it has become a tradition around here to post a cocktail on this day, so why stop the fun? (Be sure to check out past ISITK Christmas day posts for more cocktail ideas or check out the Beverages index.)

Today’s cocktail is an exotic mix of gin, elderflower liqueur and lemon juice that comes together as a fun sipper. Interestingly, I got the recipe from a web piece titled “15 Awesome Mad Men Inspired Cocktails.” The article noted that the Bombay Sapphire East Lemongrass Collins is a cocktail that Megan Draper would drink since “She’s sweet and refreshing (particualrly in Don’s eyes) but she still maintains a fiesty bite.”

I hate Megan, but I really like this cocktail.
