Cocktail of The Month – “Pink Squirrel Martini”

This month I was looking for a classic cocktail that might have been popular in the 50’s and 60’s so of course I went to THE source ~ The Official Mad Men Site.

No point to Google or Wiki it when there is an bona fide reason
to look at Jon Hamm.
Seriously.

They have a great page for classic cocktails.

Oh darn. Did that link take you to Don Drapper?
You’re welcome.

Here is the real page. 🙂

I was delighted to find a pink martini with this …
Crème de Noyaux ~ A pink liqueur that has a distinct almond flavor and is made with the stones of plums, cherries, peaches and apricots!

Doesn’t it look delish?


And the martini too! 😉
