When did you get hooked on the cable television series, Breaking Bad? When it first launched or after watching multiple seasons’ worth of episodes at a time wishing it wouldn’t end? (I was the latter). Either way, the landmark series about a chemistry teacher who heads into the dark drug world becoming a murderous kingpin with the code name, Heisenberg, now has vodka named after him.
The limited edition line of Heisenberg Blue Ice Vodka was inspired by the Breaking Bad series and launched by Sony Pictures Television and 21st Century Spirits. For devoted fans of Walter White, you can buy the three special blue bottles each with a catch phrase from the show and a silhouette of Walter on the bottle:
- Tread Lightly
- Say My Name
- The One Who Knocks
If you are a vodka fan, here are some interesting details. Blue Ice Vodka was founded in 2002. It is handcrafted in Idaho from those famous Idaho Russet Potatoes we are so familiar with and pristine water, making this vodka one of the purest products in the market. There is no added sugar, is gluten-free and non-GMO. The Heisenberg “Breaking Bad” edition launched in June of this year.
“The Dude had his White Russians, the Blues Brothers had their Night Train… and now Heisenberg has his very own Blue Ice Vodka!” said Vince Gilligan, Executive Producer and Creator of Breaking Bad. “I’m counting on our fans to use it in the creation of a great many delicious cocktails. I’m getting thirsty just thinking about it.”
Just like in chemistry class, mixing ingredients creates intriguing results. And here’s mine:
Breaking Bad Cocktail
1 part Heisenberg Vodka
1 part Pomegranate juice
1 part black cherry soda (I like Dr. Brown’s)
Splash of ginger ale
Squeeze of fresh lime
Garnish with black cherries
