The 2012 Emmy Awards are September 23rd, and what better way to celebrate than with a retro-themed Mad Men party? You’ll need some season 5 guest stars like Cool Whip, Bugles, and Heinz baked beans, plus modern takes on 60′s classics like dip, deviled eggs, and baked Alaska. For drinks, you’ll want something sophisticated. Give your favorite old-fashioned cocktails an update with fresh ingredients and a modern twist. Or try this orange gin fizz! It’s packed with flavor and depth thanks to the fresh-squeezed orange juice and orange zest. Sweet and fizzy, it’s just the thing to get your Emmy party started.
