Image Credit: Craig Blankenhorn/AMCOnly two days until the Mad Men season 4 premiere, and what better way to celebrate the launch of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce than by pouring yourself a drink (or twelve)? If you like healthy competition, how about making a game out of it? You could drink every time Don has a meaningless fling, Roger Sterling is blatantly sexist, Betty ignores her needy children, or Joan is awesome. Or if you’re really looking to celebrate, why not just cut to the chase and drink when the characters of Mad Men do what they do best (and most frequently): drink. In case you’ve forgotten just how often that is, watch Vulture’s “Drunk Men” video, which highlights all the wonderfully boozy moments of the show (and the philosophy behind them: “We drink because it’s what men do.”)

Consider this your Friday (and Saturday, and Sunday) night plans, PopWatchers. And while it seems most appropriate to sip what Don Draper and Co. are partial to — that would be Old Fashioneds, Manhattans, and Martinis — feel free to pick your own poison (just lay off the seafood!). Last (wo)man standing will be declared the winner…or an alcoholic.

What are you doing to celebrate the return of Mad Men?
