Cocktails inspirés de ma vie quotidienne

Peggy’s Brandy Alexander

All week, I was trying to decide which MAD MEN character was going to inspire my Sunday drink.  I really wanted to choose Betty, because I think we do not see her enough so far this season.

Of course, the obvious choice was Peggy Olson.  In last week’s episode, Peggy  beat her old boss and mentor at what he does best, and won the Heinz Ketchup account with her catsup vs. Ketchup pitch.

This made me think of how much Peggy has evolved since the beginning of the series. It made me want to go back in time. This is how I remembered the bad dinner date Peggy had with Carl Winter in the Indian Summer episode from Season One.  

Toute la semaine, je me suis questionnée à savoir quel serait le personnage de MAD MEN qui allait inspirer mon cocktail du dimanche.  J’ai été tentée de choisir Betty, car je trouve que nous ne la voyons pas assez cette saison.  

Bien sûr le choix évident était Peggy Olson.  Dans l’épisode de la semaine dernière, Peggy a remporté  le compte du Ketchup Heinz battant du même coup, son ancien patron et mentor.

Ceci m’a fait réfléchir sur comment elle a évoluée depuis le début de la série.  En remontant dans le temps, je me suis souvenue de sa très mauvaise sortie au restaurant avec Carl Winter dans l’épisode Indian Summer de la Saison Un.

1 3/4 oz Brandy

3/4 oz dark Crème de Cacao

I love the smell of freshly grated nutmeg.

She does not even stay long enough to finish her Brandy Alexander…What a shame.

Elle ne reste même pas assez longtemps pour terminer son Brandy Alexander…Dommage.
