I think he'd be ordering up Daiquiris & Margaritas instead of Old Fashions & Martinis.
This is a perfect summer cocktail. It is bright, refreshing, not too sweet and has plenty of lime flavor. I don't drink alcohol very often, but I really enjoyed watching the Mad Men season finale while sipping this tasty drink.
