Four MORE Exclusive Game of Thrones Cocktails

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.

  • 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.

  • 1 1/2 oz dark port
  • 1/2 oz Fernet-Branca
  • 1/2 oz green Chartreuse
  • 2 dashes angostura bitters

  • 1/2 oz coffee liqueur

  • 1/2 oz heavy cream

Dry shake, then shake with ice; pour into glass. Top with cinnamon.

Four New EXCLUSIVE Game of Thrones Cocktails


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?

  • 2 oz white rum
  • 3/4 oz fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 oz Campari
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup

Shake and strain into a coupe.


The Maid of Tarthokay, so it’s more purple than sapphire, but it’s still a strong yet surprisingly sweet concoction

  • 2 oz light fruity blended scotch (e.g., Johnny Walker Red, Compass Box Asyla)
  • 1/2 oz Curaçao
  • 3/4 oz lime juice
  • 1/2 oz Crème Yvette (or Crème de Violette)

  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 5 dashes angostura bitters

Stir and strain into a cup. Set a piece of lime peel in the drink. Pour 151-proof rum on the peel. Light peel with match. Make sure you blow out the fire before it warps your cup.

  • 1 oz Lillet Blanc

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

As a final note, are there any characters you would like my resident mixologists to make a cocktail for? Issue the challenge in the comments and I’ll debut them here at the halfway point in the season!


Well, I was working on some Tarth sigil armwarmers and then realized that the gold and rose beads are so light you can’t tell what that it’s a sun. So now I have to find new beads and undo all of my work. Harumph.

So what I give to you now is some updates. I have added additional links to the craft directory and have given the cocktail list its very own page! With new recipes! Woohoo! Both link are at the top of the page.

All of the Game of Thrones Cocktails You Can Handle

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…
