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?
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:
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).
"I’m supposed to marry Prince Joffrey! I love him! And I’m meant to be his queen and have his babies!" - Sansa Stark "Seven hells!" - Arya Stark
1 oz bourbon
1 oz Goldschlager (or any other liquor with gold flakes)
1 1/2 oz Grand Marnier (or any other orange liqueur) juice of half a lemon
Pour some ice into a short glass (old-fashioned).
Add all the ingredients and stir.
Garnish by dropping a thin lemon slice into the glass, it should float.
"There are no men like me. Only me." - Jaime Lannister
1 oz Chambord
1 oz Pimms #1
1 oz sweet vermouth
3 oz pomegranate juice
1/4 oz grenadine
juice of half a lime
fresh raspberries, blackberries and blueberries for garnish
In a wine glass add a few cubes of ice and some of the berries.
Add all the other ingredients and stir.
"For the night is dark and full of terrors." - Melisandre
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:
"I will not give my life for Joffrey's murder. And I know I'll get no justice here, so I'll let the gods decide my fate. I demand a trial by combat!" - Tyrion Lannister (a.k.a. The Imp)
1 oz vodka
1/2 oz ginger beer
juice of half a lime
Pour all the ingredients into a shot glass. (I used a pointy shot glass with a red dot to symbolize Arya's little sword and a drop of blood. I am not ashamed of this.)
"First lesson: stick 'em with the pointy end." - Jon Snow "I know which end to use!" -Arya Stark
1 1/2 oz Chambord
1 can of Guinness
few fresh blackberries
Pour ice into a tall glass and add the blackberries.
Pour the Chambord over the ice.
Top it off with Guinness.
"You know nothing, Jon Snow." - Ygritte "I do know some things. I know I love you. I know you love me. I have to go home now." - Jon Snow
Mother of Dragons:
3 balls of dragon fruit cut out using 1/2 tsp spoon
Scoop the balls of dragon fruit out and place them in a champagne flute.
Top with the Rosé.
"Dracarys!" - Daenerys Targaryen
1 oz tequila
1 oz fresh orange juice
quarter of an orange slice for garnish
Pour all the chilled ingredients into a cordial glass and drop the small orange slice into the glass for garnish.
"I did warn you not to trust me." - Lord Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish
1 1/2 oz tequila
1 oz grenadine
1/2 oz blue curaçao
juice of a whole lime
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.
"All men must die." - Jaqen H'ghar
So, I hope you enjoyed at least one of the 10 Game of Thrones cocktails.
