10 Game of Thrones Cocktails

10 game of thrones theme cocktails drinks 17

Only 3 more episodes of Game of Thrones left!

Perfect time to make theme cocktails for your GoT viewing party, or if you’re watching the show solo and you just wanna treat yourself to something special. Even if you don’t watch the show, you might still find a cocktail here that you like.

I made 10 Game of Thrones cocktails (plus 5 more here) and there is a cocktail here for every taste, whether you like sweet, sour or just plain-old strong drinks. To help soak up all that booze, I also made a very Easy Game of Thrones Party Menu to go along with all these drinks.

I love anything with a theme, so sit back and enjoy the ride because when you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. (Pop Quiz: Name the character who said this.)

So you might as well have a cocktail, right?

white walker game of thrones cocktail drink 3

White Walker:
Fill a tall glass with ice.
Pour white chocolate liqueur halfway up the glass.
Fill the rest of the glass up with vanilla cream soda.
Slowly and gently pour a spoonful of blue curaçao over the top (drink should look layered: light blue on top with white below).

I recommend enjoying this cocktail with a straw.

lady sansa stark game of thrones cocktail drink 7

Lady Sansa Stark:
1 oz rose vodka (or any vodka, really)
1/4 oz saffron liquid (available online or in Middle Eastern markets or you can make it yourself by steeping a few strands of saffron in hot water)
1 1/2 oz sweet vermouth
1 1/2 oz lemongrass syrup or saffron & cardamom syrup (or just a basic simple syrup, equal parts sugar and water dissolved over heat then cooled, no need to stress out over annoying Sansa. Hmph.)
juice of a juicy orange

Place a scoopful of ice in a cocktail shaker (or in a large glass).
Pour all the ingredients into a shaker and shake (or into a glass and stir).
Pour into a coupe or martini glass and garnish with a slice of starfruit (Sansa “Star”-k, get it? I used my lemongrass syrup because we all know how much Sansa loves her lemon cakes).

tyrion the imp game of thrones cocktail drink 1

The Imp:
1 1/2 oz vodka
1/4 oz fresh lemon juice
1/4 oz lemongrass syrup (or any simple syrup, equal parts sugar and water dissolved over heat then cooled)
sugar for rim (optional)

Rub a lemon onto the rim of a shot glass.
Dip the shot glass into some sugar to create a sugar-rim.
In a separate glass, add all the ingredients and stir.
Pour the mixture into the shot glass.

I used a mini shot glass sized beer mug, which seemed perfect for The Imp.

Just for reference, I placed the mini-mug next to a measuring cup so you can see how small it is:

Slam it.

valor morghulis game of thrones cocktail drink 9

Valar Morghulis:
1 1/2 oz tequila
1 oz grenadine
1/2 oz blue curaçao
juice of a whole lime
club soda
Slice of lime and orange, plus blueberries for garnish

Fill a tall glass with ice.
Add the tequila, grenadine, blue curaçao and lime juice.
Top off with club soda and add the fruits for garnish.
Stir everything together, the drink should be purple, but not so dark that the blueberries are not visible. That’s why a tall glass helps.

  7. Question – how do you keep the white walker from getting gross and foamy when you add the cream soda?

    • I find that if you pour it slowly, and tip the glass a little to the side (like how you pour a beer to prevent it from getting a big head) that will reduce the amount of foam. Pouring it quickly into a straight up glass will create lots of foam. Hope this helps 🙂

  10. So I thought I’d try and invent a cocktail called Valar Morghulis, but googled it first to see if it was already taken. Of course it was, but I’m glad it was by you…you’re a creative genius. Each one of these made me go “whooaaaaa…”

    • Thank you for your kind words, they mean a lot to me! I’d love to see what you would come up with for Valar Morghulis. A man can die in many ways.

      P.S. Keep your eye out for my site, it’s undergoing a major redesign and I’ve got lots of goodies coming soon!!
