Toast the "Mad Men" premiere with these retro cocktails

"Are you alone?"

That's what Don Draper (Jon Hamm) was asked by a mystery woman at the end oflast year's season finale of "Mad Men." Now, with the show returning Sunday night, we'll (maybe) find out the answer.

The show's sixth season kicks off with a two-hour premiere beginning at 9 p.m. ET on AMC. Reviews have been solid, and fans are eager to find out what happens to Don, Megan, Peggy, Joan, Pete and the rest of the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce crew.
