If there’s one thing we’ve learned from watching Mad Men, it’s drink early and often. No wait, we said that wrong — that makes it sound like we have a problem. Liquor before beer, all clear. No wait, that’s college. Here’s what it boils down to: simple syrup, because how else are you going to make a dang gimlet properly? We’re not making this point very well. However you slice your limes, raise a glass to the final season of the iconic series that brought back the classic cocktail with a vengeance. It taught us that 5-year-olds can make a great Collins and that, most importantly, it’s not over till the bottle’s empty. Cheers!
