Just one more day of waiting until the beginning of the end: meaning the bittersweet final epsiodes of Breaking Bad, a TV show so amazing, it needs custom cocktails created it its honor! Thrillist Dot Com has posted a few intriguing recipes for potent potables — including The Blue Sky, The Mr. White and The Captain Cook — that you can shake up for your upcoming Breaking Bad viewing parties, as we drink our way to a very sad day.

Here’s how to make one of them:

Blue Sky Cocktail
•1.5oz Pisco brandy
•1/4oz Absinthe
•1/2oz lemon juice
•3/4oz Orgeat
•1 egg white
•1/4oz Blue Curaçao
•Soda

For a little crystal blue persuasion, just pour everything but the soda into a shaker (without ice), then jostle that sucker until the egg’s all foamy. When the chemical balance of cold and blue is complete, pour it into a glass, top it with crushed ice, then fill it with soda until the foam reaches the top. Garnish it with 99.1% pure blue rock candy.

Ode to Kenley Collins

Inspired by last night’s episode of Project Runway

 

Sung to the tune of “Brandy” by Looking Glass

There’s a girl, in this harbor town
and she works, stitching clothes and gowns.
They say, “Kenley, don’tcha whine and frown”
She makes them a bubble skirt.
The tailors say “Kenley, you’re a fine girl
What a good designer you would be
But your voice makes Nina Garcia
Leave the set.”

(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)

Kenley, does her Bettie Page
Jet black hair, the 1940s rage.
Silk flower, pinned up in her hair
And blood red lipstick, too.

He left, on a summer’s day
In a tugboat, going far away
He made it clear, he couldn’t stay
No harbor was his home.”

Confession: I found these lyrics – unaccredited – on some fan board earlier todayand changed them up a bit! If you are the original writer let me know and I’ll give you props!)
