Happy Halloween... Mad Men style!

Here's a little tidbit about me... I LOVE HALLOWEEN! We used to go to parties, but now it's more about hanging out, with some pizza, snacks, our fire pit out front while we sip spiked apple cider and pass out treats to the kids. I still love to dress up too! I don't always dress up, but I usually try to get in the spirit a bit.

This year, I decided to dress up a bit more than usual. I've been watching a lot of the Mad Men series, while I work on my along MidCentury Cocktail Series Illustrations. I love the show. I cannot get enough of it! So I decided to be a male, Art Director (because well, there were no female AD's back then) in the ad agency of Sterling-Cooper!

Now I gotta get back to work! I have a big presentation with the Lucky Strike cigarette people in the morning! Joan.... get me a drink!

Gimlet + Sidecar MidCentury Cocktail Watercolor Series Illustrations

I finished up two more MidCentury cocktail illustrations today! The Gimlet & The Sidecar. The Gimlet is a vodka drink, sweetened with lime juice and served on the rocks. Yum! The Sidecar is made with cognac, triple sec, and lemon juice. Shake it up with ice and serve in a fancy cocktail glass. Cheers to the weekend!

Cuba Libre MidCentury Cocktail Illustration Series

I thought by the name of the Cuba Libre it was going to be some kind of exotic drink, and Wow what a surprise! While still a classic... it's your basic Rum and Coke with a lime. I think if a Rum and Coke was my drink, I'd bring back the Cuba Libre name and make my ordering my basic drink sound more exciting.

Prints are now available in my Etsy shop!

Classic Martini MidCentury Cocktail Illustration Series

I always think of James Bond when I think of the Classic Martini!

Old Fashioned MidCentury Cocktail Illustration

When I'm working down in my studio sometimes I listen to movies on Netflix. Yesterday to get in the spirit of the classic Old Fashioned cocktail, I started listening to the "Mad Men" TV series. The Old Fashioned certainly seems like a drink that Don Draper would have after a long client meeting in the office or actually knowing his character it might even take place before. HA!
