Suzanne Murray

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?
