Mad Men Catch-Up! Episodes 1 and 2: Galliano

by Michelle

Since the site has been down, I’ve fallen behind on Mad Men. But I do have a few cocktail notes for the current season!

In the first and second episodes (the 2 hour season premiere), the doorman has gifted Don and Megan with a bottle of Galliano, which they open on New Year’s Eve, 1967.

Galliano is an herbal liqueur from Italy. It’s known for it’s bright yellow hue and distinct tall bottle. According to Wikipedia, the color symbolizes the Gold Rush of the 1890s. The exact recipe for original Galliano is considered a “closely guarded secret,” but the flavors include vanilla, star anise, ginger, citrus, juniper and lavender. All of these natural ingredients are infused into neutral alcohol, with the exception of the vanilla. The vanilla comes later, when the alcohol is distilled and then infused with vanilla.  I haven’t yet had Galliano, but now I’d like to try a sip. There are cocktails made with the drink, although in the photo above, Megan is serving it straight in simple aperitif  glasses.

From the Galliano site (because it’s hot here and this looks amazingly cool and refreshing):

La Dolce Vita

1.5 tbsp Galliano Vanilla
1 tbsp Limoncello
Top off with Prosecco

Build the ingredients in an ice-filled glass and garnish with orange or lime wheels.
