Missing HBO’s most promising new show after the tantalizing finale? Still puzzling over all the twists and revelations finally unveiled in it? The first season of “Westworld” might be over, but that doesn’t mean our obsession with it has to be.
This pair of cocktails will help you stay hydrated while you ponder theories about the show. Ford’s Final Narrative is an elegant martini with a full range of wine notes. The Blood Arroyo, meanwhile, is not so straightforward. “A mysterious concoction from Lawrence’s hometown,” according to the recipe creators, it’s sweet, smoky and has a bit of a wild side.
Sadly, the drinks probably won’t be enough to tide you over until “Westworld” returns — given that it’s not coming back until 2018.
