I promised you more drinks, and I’m delivering, just in time for the halfway mark of the season! Here are four more cocktails focused on sidekicks from GoT. Mild spoilers for the new season.
Drinks by Clifton Hyde and Joe Peretore. If you post these elsewhere, please credit.
Jaime Lannister’s Severed Hand – Like a hand that’s been on a rope for several days, this is mostly grey cocktail with a puddle of blood at the bottom
- 2 oz reposado tequila
- 3/4 oz lemon juice
- 1/2 oz Maraschino liqueur
- Slightly less than 1/4 oz Crème de Violette
Shake and strain into coupe. Pour a small amount grenadine into the center of the glass.
Wine of Courage – A real-life fortified wine paired with a liqueur made by monks, this cocktail will make you brave enough to have your nipple cut off (but seriously that’s a terrible idea, don’t do that)
- 1 1/2 oz dark port
- 1/2 oz Fernet-Branca
- 1/2 oz green Chartreuse
- 2 dashes angostura bitters
Stir with ice and strain into a glass over a single small ice cube.
The Translations of Missandei – A frappacino-esque drink that will loosen your tongue and keep you awake during long nights of multilingual negotiations
- 2 oz brandy
- 1/2 oz dark crème de cacao
- 1/2 oz coffee liqueur
- 1 egg white
- 1/2 oz port
Dry shake the bejeezus out of it. Shake with ice. Strain into glass.
Farewell, Hot Pie – It tastes like an apple pie. What more do you need?
- 2 oz apple brandy
- 1 whole egg
- 1/2 oz spiced apple syrup
- 1/2 oz heavy cream
Dry shake, then shake with ice; pour into glass. Top with cinnamon.
