Gin of Thrones: A cocktail of ice and fire

Cocktails of Ice and Fire

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.



… And what do we say to the God of hangovers? NOT TODAY!

REVIEW: Opihr Gin

I first tried Opihr Gin (pronounced “o-peer”) in a craft beer and gin bar in Edinburgh called the Hanging Bat, as one of five gins included in their famous pick-your-own gin flights. Of the 5 I sampled that day, Opihr stood leaps and bounds above the rest, and has since become a firm favourite, not […]
