Classic Cocktails- Zombie- White Russian- Whiskey Sour- Vodka Gimlet- Tom Collins- Stinger

Here we have a few wonderful classic cocktails from back in the day. These cocktails are coming back into light as of late, thanks to some great throwback shows like Mad Men. It just so happens that all of these cocktails were featured on the show.

These drinks would all be some great additions to your Halloween party this year. I am told to watch out for that zombie though, with 4 different kinds of rum. It can become one self professing drink. Stay tuned I will be posting more cocktails in the next few days. Enjoy!
