Why We Like It

The fine folks at Clyde May’s Whiskey have teamed up with some of their favorite bartenders to honor their favorite mamas with custom cocktails for Mother’s Day. And that got us thinking about our favorite mom. The consensus: January Jones’ Mad Men character Elizabeth Hofstadt Francis, or as everyone still likes to call her, Betty Draper. While she’s no longer officially Mrs. Draper, and she may not be the world’s best mother, it’s hard not to love Betty. Justin August Fairweather, Craft Spirits Brand Manager who created this custom cocktail, agrees. "Betty has a sense of class that eclipses most women,” Fairweather says. “She enjoys the true complexity of every situation and is fond of every beautiful thing in its true nature. Thus a stirred strong cocktail with a floral aroma and a dry finish embodies the strong beautiful women she is."
