A limited-edition line of Heisenberg Blue Ice Vodka, inspired by the hit television series Breaking Bad, is currently available for sale in California, and online at Reserve Bar, with nationwide sales coming soon. Three special edition bottles of Heisenberg by Blue Ice feature distinct graphics and infamous quotes such as “Say My Name,” “The One Who Knocks,” and “Tread Lightly.”
Continuing in the spirit of brilliant homage, Observer just published a side-splitting list of The 10 Most Appropriate Times to Drink Blue Ice’s ‘Breaking Bad’ Vodka, which you can read for yourself at This Link. My Favorite:
Oh, are two killer twins after you? With axes? Because that is a horrifyingly specific weapon to use in this day and age. Do they have you cornered in a parking lot? After a peaceful day of shopping, no less? How awful. Oh there you go, you killed one with your car. Is the other twin bearing down on you, slowly, axe raised as you fumble for your gun? How very stressful. You deserve a nice chilled vodka, my friend. Then I suggest you break the bottle over the bumper of your Jeep Commando and prepare to fight.
The idea of “repurposing” — taking something old and giving it a new life — is an exciting concept that creates a world of possibilities. Sacred Gallery explores those possibilities (with an inclination towards the darker side of imagination and reality) with a highly amusing new group exhibit entitled Re-Thrifted. To create Re-Thrifted more than two dozen artists started with Thrift Store art finds and recreated the original piece as a new work of art. There are both paintings and sculptures in the exhibit and it was so much fun to view the show and compare the new artworks to their more humble beginnings, as many of the pieces are hung alongside tiny prints showing the pieces that inspired their genesis.

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
•1/2oz lemon juice
•1 egg white
•1/4oz Blue Curaçao
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.
I am totally torn between extreme sadness and ecstatic delight that Breaking Bad will be starting its final episodes in just a few days. It is just the best show ever, and I will miss it terribly.
