'Mad Men'-inspired cocktails

Break out the good whiskey and dust off the highball glasses, "Mad Men" is back. Already famous for its whiskey-soaked episodes where characters can't seem to go an hour without a nip, "Mad Men" provides fans with the opportunity (and atmosphere) to indulge in a celebratory Old Fashioned (or two). To get ready for our "Mad Men" viewing party, we asked six bartenders to create character-based cocktails.

Cute as Hell (a.k.a. the Peggy). 

1 1/2 ounces Hudson Manhattan Rye Whiskey 
1/2 ounce Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur 
1/4 ounce Art in the Age Snap (gingersnap-flavored liquor) 
Just under 1/4 ounce Bittermens Hellfire Habanero Shrub
1 quick shake Angostura bitters 
2 orange wheels 
2 teaspoons white sugar 
Sugar in the Raw for rimming glass 

In a mixing glass, muddle and crush the two orange slices with the sugar, bitters and shrub. Add whiskey, Solerno and Snap with ice. Give a quick stir to combine ingredients and slightly chill. Pour into a lightly sugared rocks glass.
