The 2-hour Season 5 premiere of Mad Men airs on Sunday, March 25 at 9/8c on AMC. Are you ready?

Here’s a checklist for a perfect Mad Men premiere party.

__Cocktails
Stock your bar with ingredients for Old Fashioneds, Dirty Martinis, Manhattans, Vodka Gimlets, and Whiskey Sours.

Old Fashioned recipe (courtesy of drinksmixer.com)
2 oz bourbon whiskey
2 dashes bitters
1 splash water
1 tsp sugar
1 maraschino cherry
1 orange wedge

Mix sugar, water and angostura bitters in an old-fashioned glass. Drop in a cherry and an orange wedge. Muddle into a paste using a muddler or the back end of a spoon. Pour in bourbon, fill with ice cubes, and stir.

__Snacks
Chips and dip, salted nuts, bar snacks, pimiento cheese on crackers, deviled eggs, or pigs in a blanket.

__Attire
If you are a hostess, wear a flower or polka dot hostess apron over a 50s-inspired flared dress.
For female party-goers, wear a pencil skirt with a matching cardigan, or find a shirtwaist dress, belted ruffle dress, or polka dot swing dress.
For guys, wear a white dinner jacket and bowtie, or a double-breasted suit.

__Accessories
Don a fedora or a fascinator.
Get a pair of classic eyewear from the era, such as wayfarer sunglasses or eyeglasses with browline frames.

__Shoes
For guys, think black-laced, wing-tipped oxfords.
For girls, think saddle shoes, solid pumps, or ballet flats.

__Affordable Jewelry
For girls, find a pearl strand, long pendant necklace or a vintage brooch. Look for matching earring and necklace sets
For guys, find tie bars, cuff links, and signet rings
