Inn at the Crossroads has posted a couple of awesome ideas for a GoT premiere party – doggie bags and felt placemats!
Also, the cocktail list has been updated with an additional miscellaneous cocktail, this one featuring cinnamon Schnapps and Red Hots.
It turns out, based on my stats, that a lot of people end up on my site from Googling phrases about Game of Thrones cocktails. (And then they get pictures of hankies. What inadvertent trolling! HAHAHA.) It makes sense; with the premiere only a week away (!!!) people are looking for ways to make their viewing parties extra special, or at least have something to drown their sorrows in during certain scenes.
At any rate, I mentioned how popular my cocktail post was to my mixologist boyfriend, and he immediately got down to business. “What are the houses? What are their sigils? What colors are they?” We flipped through his cocktail books and scoured the internet and found some yummy, and punny, cocktails perfect for watching the Game of Thrones premiere. I’ve included the recipes in the post, so you don’t have to have 800 tabs open to see what drinks you want to make. I’m nice like that.
Since this makes for a long post, I’ve divided the drinks up by houses and put them under the cut below. And if you have another cocktail that would fit in here, please let me know in the comments and I’ll add it.
NOTE: Some of these recipes are well-known standards, and some of them are recent inventions. When a recipe is from a specific blog or cocktail book, I have provided a link it. However, all the recipes are readily available on the internet, so I’m not trying to gank someone else’s hard work. All unattributed drinks are from Wikipedia or other online cocktail databases.
And now, for the cocktails…
