It’s time to celebrate and time to mourn. It is the end of an era. An era filled with drama, madness and meth. Yes, we are talking about the final episode of “Breaking Bad.” And as we sit here anxiously awaiting Sunday night’s bittersweet finale, we felt it was only right to head to our own “lab” and cook up something legal to enjoy.

Walter White’s now famous mode of transport is forever burned in our minds, with and without windshield intact. “Breaking Bad” creator, Vince Gilligan, had the memorable green color custom made, and no other Aztek can be found in that color. The Savory bartender, Pete Capella, did his best to pay homage to that color, along with the down and dirty tone of the show, by putting together a cocktail that is almost as groundbreaking as “Breaking Bad” itself. Ladies and gents, The Savory proudly presents: The Pontiac Aztek Cocktail.
