With a mid-century food and cocktail menu featuring drinks like the Mint Julep and the Rye Manhattan, Mad Men and Martinis January 2010- was a riot. Party goers were asked to dress up and compete for best dressed. In keeping with the recurring theme of Luck Strikes, Booze and scandalous affairs- Rachel Reichert shot a collection of images from the Modern Mad Men party… Pink stripped sheets, whisky, cookbooks, ashtrays, and even a photograph of Rachel’s grandparents adorned room 118 of the Modern Hotel. Rachel asked people to sit on the edge of the bed and pretend as if they were just about to leave the room. If people attended room 118 alone, she became their counterpart.

Cameron’s Kick, Late 1920′s
Little is known of the origin of the Cameron’s Kick. We don’t know who created it or what inspired this unlikely combination. We do know it was recorded in two London cocktail manuals in the1930s. This sour-type cocktail uses unusual ingredients and is well-balanced and easy to drink.
Irish Whiskey, Blended Scotch, orgeat, lemon juice, orange twist. Up.
