Six "Wicked" cocktails, inspired by the Broadway production now playing in Salt Lake City, have landed at Bambara. Enjoy one of these specialty drinks with dinner before the show or visit the restaurant’s Vault bar after the production.

"They are wickedly good and are guaranteed to help get people in a theatrical mood," said Guy Wheelwright, Bambara’s general manager. The cocktails will be on the drink menu throughout the "Wicked" run, which ends Aug. 24.

No matter which character is your favorite, there’s a cocktail for you:

Green with Elphie » Just like the character, this emerald green drink looks evil but really is sweet. Served in a Champagne flute, it’s made with vanilla vodka, Midori muskmelon-flavored liqueur, pineapple juice and sweet and sour. $10.

Glinda-Licious » Three good things — Buffalo Trace Bourbon, ginger liqueur and dash bitters — come together in this cocktail served in a martini glass. $10.

Flying Monkey » Get a mischievous shot of caffeine with this chilled coffee cocktail that combines vanilla vodka, coffee liqueur and a shot of espresso. $10.

Elphaba’s Elixir » A refreshing summer cooler made with premium gin, Prosecco and ginger beer. $11.

Dr. Dillamond’s Dram » Raise a glass to the show’s scholarly talking goat with this cocktail of rum, grenadine, cranberry, orange and pineapple juice and a float of premium rum. $10.

Madame Morrible’s Mead » Things may have turned out differently if the evil headmistress had enjoyed this tequila-based cocktail with peach schnapps and fresh-squeezed orange juice. $11.

Bambara » 202 S. Main, Salt Lake City. Open daily for breakfast and dinner, weekdays for lunch. On Sunday, Bambara is open for brunch and will open one hour early at 5 p.m. so guests can make the 6:30 p.m. curtain call of "Wicked."
