Four New EXCLUSIVE Game of Thrones Cocktails

IMGP1206

I have a treat for you guys today! Last night, I was involved in a cocktail lab focused on creating four new cocktails based on four supporting characters from Game of Thrones. Well, okay, the two mixologists actually did the creating; I provided background information and photography skills. The results are quite fabulous! The premier is only hours away; why not serve up one (or more) of these at your viewing party?

I hope you guys enjoy these drinks as much as we enjoyed making them! Please comment with any feedback you have.
