After what feels like years of waiting, the long night is over and Game of Thrones season 7 is finally upon us. Knowing Game of Thrones, you’re probably going to need a large drink when this season ends to cope with the inevitable deaths of our favourite characters. That’s why we’ve put together two maester-ful cocktails, inspired by our favourite contenders for the throne: Jon Snow – the King in the North and Daenerys Targaryen – the Mother of Dragons. Just remember, no matter what happens this season – the night is dark and full of gin!
Fire (Daenerys Targaryen) – Fire & Blood
- 50ml navy-strength gin
- 20ml grapefruit juice
- 10ml freshly squeezed lime juice
- 25ml cherry liqueur
- 10ml cinnamon syrup
- 1 teaspoon simple syrup
Shake all of your ingredients (minus the gin) in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a martini glass.
Top carefully with the navy-strength gin.
Set your drink aflame! (please be very careful if doing this at home)
Ice (Jon Snow) – Winter is Here
- 50ml blue curacao
- 25ml navy-strength gin
- A dash of orange bitters
- Lots of ice
Swirl the orange bitters around the edge of your cocktail glass.
Fill the glass with a mountain of ice.
Shake the gin and blue curacao together with ice in a cocktail shaker.
POUR IT JON SNOW.
… And what do we say to the God of hangovers? NOT TODAY!
