and live on Freeview channel 276
Blue meth might be off the menu, but ‘99.1% pure’ drinks will be on it when a Breaking Bad pop-up bar opens in Edinburgh next month.
Crystal Blue, which launches at Summerhall Drinks Lab on February 14, takes its inspiration from the TV show considered one of the best of all time.
It’s the latest genius idea from The Cocktail Geeks, the team have previously created Stephen King, Monty Python, Walking Dead, Harry Potter and Stranger Things themed pop-up bars.
They've also created a Game of Thrones bar and experiences, which included a one-of-a-kind wine tasting experience that allowed guests to “journey across the Seven Kingdoms” and taste the closest real world counterparts to the wines described in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series.
Tickets for Crystal Blue are on sale now.
Breaking Bad fans will get a drink upon entry, special-themed ‘Los Pollos Hermanos' popcorn, and two cocktails from the menu.
Announcing their latest pop-up on Instagram, The Cocktails Geeks wrote: “Breaking Bad inspired cocktails... You're goddamn right.
“Crystal Blue launches on February 14th. We're not in the cocktail business, we're in the empire business. While we build ourselves a brand new super-bar in the Arches, you can find us cooking up cocktails at Summerhall Drinks Lab.
“Serving Thursday - Sunday until the end of March. April dates TBC. Get your tickets now and enjoy a selection of 99.1% pure delicious drinks inspired by the dangerous world of Heisenberg. They're the Bomb, yo.”
