I drink and I know things

In honor of tonight’s big finale, let’s drink! We’re going to need it.

 

White Walker Cocktail

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • Blue food coloring
  • 1/4 lemon
  • Crushed ice
  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce blue curacao
  • Clear lemonade
  • For the dragon glass candy:
  • Blue jolly ranchers, melted
  1. Make the dragon glass candy: Melt blue jolly ranchers in the microwave at 80% power for 1 minute. Microwave power varies, so be careful and adjust as needed for your microwave. If not fully melted, continue cooking in 15-second increments. When finished, pour onto a silicone baking mat and allow to set; Once hard, break into shards of varying sizes and set aside.
  2. Prepare the cocktail: Put a glass in the freezer for about 5 minutes. Put the salt on a plate, then add 1 to 2 drops of food coloring and smear it on the salt. Mix it through until the salt turns blue, then spread it out on the plate. Remove the class from the freezer, rub the lemon wedge around the rim of the glass, then dip the wet rim into the blue salt.
  3. Fill 1/4 of the glass with crushed ice, then add vodka, blue curacao and the juice of the lemon wedge. Slowly mix it everything together with a spoon. Top with lemonade.
  4. Finally, break off long shards of the candy, and stick them in the cocktail.

The Prince That Was Promised Cocktail

  • Crushed ice
  • 2 ounces honey bourbon (like Jim Beam)
  • Juice of 1/2 lime (approximately 1 tablespoon)
  • Ginger beer (approximately 1/2 can)
  • 1 tablespoon cranberry syrup
  • For the cranberry syrup:
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 ounce tequila
  • For garnish:
  • 1 hollowed out lime half (save the lime when you juice it for the cocktail)
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon mezcal (approximate amount, depends on the size of your lime half)
  • Food grade citrus essential oils (optional)
  1. Make the cranberry syrup: Put the cranberries in a small saucepan and muddle well to release the juices. Add the sugar and water, and bring to a boil. Let boil for 3 minutes. Reduce to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the tequila. Leave to cool then strain twice, and store in the fridge until ready to use.
  2. Prepare cocktail and garnish: Fill a rocks glass with crushed ice. Pour over the honey bourbon and lime juice. Fill almost to the top with ginger beer. Drizzle the cranberry syrup over the top.
  3. Put brown sugar in your lime half and place on top of the drink, hollowed side facing up. Fill the lime half with mezcal. Optional: put a couple of drops of the food grade citrus essential oils over the top of the mezcal, and spread a drop or two around the rim of the lime half (this gives you a bigger and longer flame).
  4. Use a stick lighter to light the garnish. Let it burn for 10 seconds, then use a spoon to dunk the lime half into the drink to put out the flame and get the mezcal into the drink.

Cersei’s Mulled Wine

  • 1 (750 ml) bottle red wine
  • 1 orange, sliced into rounds, plus more for garnish
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 star anise, plus more for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan. Heat on medium-high heat on a low simmer for 15 minutes and up to 3 hours, making sure not to boil the contents. Remove from heat and strain. Serve warm topped with desired ingredients.
