In case you hadn’t noticed, we’re just a little bit excited about the premiere of Mad Men’s sixth season this evening. We can’t think of a better series to pair with an old-fashioned drinking game — or a classic Old Fashioned. Everyone’s favorite ad execs will be boozing their way into the late 1960s, and it only seems fair that we get to join them. Raise your glass, and hit the jump to play along. Drink responsibly, because we don’t want another Freddy Rumsen on our hands.
