The Blue Crystal cocktail.

Need some drink inspiration for your Emmy viewing party? Better start drinking in honor of your favorite shows. The Avalon Beverly Hills whipped up a whole menu of drinks inspired by Emmy-nominated shows (including Homeland, Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, and Downton Abbey), and shared with us two recipes inspired by two runaway TV hits: Breaking Bad and Girls. Check out the Blue Crystal cocktail recipe, cleverly named after an, ahem, important ingredient, on the show. Click here for the Girls-inspired cocktail, No Sleep Til Brooklyn

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
