WARNING: Season 7 spoilers ahead – do not read this recipe if you’re not caught up!
Game of Thrones season 7 has come to an end (cry) and what an incredible season it was: full to the brim with scenes that we’ve been looking forward to for 6 long, hard years! Dany finally made it to Westeros, the Starks were reuinted (even if we did think that Arya was going to kill Sansa all season), the Night King got his hands on his very own wight dragon and R+L=J was finally confirmed, amidst a steamy, long-anticipated union between Jon and Dany…
Now I’m not sure about you, but I feel like I need a large drink to get over that final scene at Eastwatch, and to cope with the knowledge that I’ll be waiting at least another year to find out it’s outcome! That’s why we’ve put together two maester-ful (pardon the pun) gin cocktails, inspired by our favourite star-crossed lovers: Jon Snow – the King in the North and Daenerys Targaryen – the Mother of Dragons.
Just remember, no matter what happens next 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 Coming
- 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!
