mad men menu watch partyI'm having some friends over this weekend to watch Mad Men (my favorite show) and in trying to figure out what to feed them besides martinis, I stumbled upon the perfect menu.

Bon Appetit put together the perfect spread—a 60's-inspired cocktail party—for a "Mad Men Watch Party," and here's what it includes.

 

The Drinks

Pepper Martinis

Ginger and Luchee Caipirinhas

Retro Highball

Grapefruit Gimlet

 

The Food

Asiago-Stuffed Dates wit Bacon and Smoked Paprika

Chipotle Deviled Eggs

Caramelized Onion Dip with Cilantro-Garlic Pita Crisps

Chicks in a Blanket

Lamb Kebabs with Pomegranate-Cumin Glaze

Coconut Shrimp with Sweet Chili-Lime Sauce

White Four-Cheese Pizza with Basil and Garlic

(You can get the recipes for all or any of these by clicking here.)

I'm so excited! I'm making just a few items and having my guests bring a few. Do you have any other food or beverage ideas?

I'm also thinking about the menu for my next viewing party: True Blood. I'm thinking Bloody Marys ... but what else do you suggest?
