To celebrate the return of the final season of “Mad Men,” which premieres on April 5, Sullivan’s Steakhouse is bringing back the three-martini lunch. So to speak.

Cocktails inspired by the characters Roger Sterling, Don Draper and Betty Francis will be on the menu at the downtown restaurant through May 17, the date of the “Mad Men” finale.

Or, if you’d prefer to mix one up while you’re at home and feverishly watching the final episodes of the 1960s-set drama, here are the recipes for the trio of drinks. Each of them at Sullivan’s, located at 300 Colorado St., are $15.

The Roger

(Classic man’s man with a little dirty side.)

4 oz. Belvedere Vodka
1/2 oz. olive juice
Garnish of blue cheese olives

Combine the vodka and olive juice into a shaker. Shake 10 to 15 times. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with three olives.

The Don

(While still a classic character, Don cuts his own path and does things differently.)

4 oz. Hendrick’s Gin
1/2 oz. vermouth
Garnish of cucumber ribbons

Combine the gin and vermouth into a shaker. Shake 10 to 15 times. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the cucumber ribbon.

The Betty

(A trendsetter with a wild side)

2.5 oz. Belvedere Vodka
1 oz. Monin violet syrup
2 dashes Fee Brothers Peach Bitters
1/4 oz. Pernod
Garnish of a lemon twist                                    

Combine all ingredients into a shaker. Shake 10 to 15 times. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a sugared rim and the lemon twist.
