Rare Breed Old-Fashioned Cocktail

An old-fashioned mix for a mad manly cocktail

Guess what we started craving when we found out Jon Hamm directed the premiere of Mad Men's upcoming fifth season? Really hard question, we know. Even for the (crazy) people who don't watch it. We decided to give the classic cocktail we call the old-fashioned a jazzed-up little facelift for Cocktail of the Week. We turned to renowned mixologist Willy Shine of Contemporary Cocktails fame for this Disaronno-spiked drink any man would be mad to refuse.
