All of you Breaking Bad fans out there know that tonight is the series finale of AMC’s critically acclaimed show. Whether you’re excited or kind of sad (or a little of both), you may want to check out these 4 awesome Breaking Bad recipes from The Savory. Inspired by the show, these recipes have certain elements (pun intended) from the series you may find familiar. Take the Pontiac Aztec Cocktail recipe for instance; this delightful concoction pays homage to Walter White’s main mode of transportation: his Pontiac Aztec. The color is also a perfect match!

How about some food with your cocktail? Try this yummy Hoisin Heisenberger with Marie’s Purple Slaw recipe also from The Savory. Heisenberg is Walter White’s alias but I’m sure all of you Breaking Bad fans know that. So, you must know why The Savory named the coleslaw recipe, Maria’s Purple Slaw. Purple is Maria Schrader’s (White’s sister-in-law) favorite color. So clever, I tell you.
