It is made with London Dry Gin, dry vermouth, bitters, lemon peel and an olive. The three-course Men Who Built America pre-fixe menu ($59.99) includes: Choice of Caesar Salad, Classic Dressing Chopped Spinach Salad, Warm Bacon Dressing or Morton's Salad, Blue Cheese Dressing, Chopped Egg & Anchovies

Through exposure around the country to this highly influential demographic, we'll drive viewers to the series and to the network overall, as well as give foodies a delicious culinary experience."

Senior Vice President of Operations of Morton's, Tim Whitlock added "Morton's is honored to be part of such a fantastic series. These men left their mark on America, and it's our pleasure to join HISTORY in commemorating and recognizing their achievements."
