“Game of Thrones” Inspired Cocktails – Part 2!

Welcome back to our series of cocktails inspired by the truly massive universe of George R. R. Martin’s “Game of Thrones.” Let’s get right on into it:

It may be simple, but don’t underestimate this bastard! White and red colours dominate and mix in a cinnamony swirl we can all get down with. Just watch that shot glass in the middle. You might have to do something special with your tongue to make sure that it goes down right. gotdrink-thefury

Absinthe dominates in this lightly sweetened drink. Full-bodied and made with several other fairly neutral flavours, you won’t even realise when this drink creeps up on you. gotdrink-thekingslayer

The aromas of pear and almond make this sparkling drink shine like gold. Well, that and its colour. Delicate enough to be handled with one hand, the Kingslayer is like an autumn dessert tart in a glass. gotdrink-theknightswatchWhile on the lookout for wildlings and white walkers, you’ll want to keep caffeinated, but that doesn’t mean that you should sacrifice the creature comforts. This warm beverage is bittersweet as a night on the wall, and the toasted marshmallow will keep the midnight oil burning.

Bronn, Bronn, Bronn, you are a card. For lack of having any moonshine on-hand, we made his drink with the next best thing; tequila! Bane and best friend of woo-girls, “There’s No Cure for Cunt”‘s featured liquor gives you a party in your cup. Just don’t forget your tiny umbrellas!
