In celebration of Sunday’s Primetime Emmys and Governor’s Ball, Belvedere Vodka  has created three Emmys-inspired cocktails to toast some of the season’s most celebrated shows. Created with the world’s first super premium vodka, these Belvedere concoctions have been hand-crafted by the brand’s Head of Mixology & Spirits Creation, Claire Smith, and are sure to be a hit at your party!

Fans of Mad Men (nominated for 12 categories including Outstanding Drama Series), can toast the series with the “Draper-tini” – a classic Belvedere martini that evokes all the glamour and style of the 1960s era. If you’re addicted to Netflix’s political thriller House of Cards (Outstanding Drama Series and additional performer nominations), mix up the “Smithsonian” – a refined citrus-based cocktail in honor of Frank Underwood himself. If Breaking Bad (13 nominations including Outstanding Drama Series) is your show of choice, tip your hat to Walter White with “The Heisenberg,” a deceptively simple yet flavorful combination of Belvedere Unfiltered and fresh cucumber.
