It's been more than a year since we last saw the likes of Don Draper -- and if you ask us, that's a year too long. Thankfully, we don't have to wait much longer. 'Mad Men' returns to AMC on Sunday at 9 ET with the highly anticipated premiere of season 5, and we couldn't think of a better reason to celebrate. Or, really, a better time to indulge in old fashioneds (rye, of course).

We have to tell you: a retro menu is always a crowd-pleaser. We've seen designer-clad diet-obsessed women freak out over vintage appetizers like pigs in a blanket and deviled eggs. And with every other bar pushing 'vintage' cocktails at double-digit prices, it's no longer an odd thing to offer up a manhattan. Don't believe us? Flip through our slideshow, which features highlights from a few real-life 'Mad Men' parties...and, of course, plenty of ideas and recipes for throwing your own soiree.
