These Drinks Mix Well With Medieval Fantasy Series
Here are three cocktails to have when watching the popular HBO shows, either with a small group or an entire army.
Armed with these drinks, the only fighting you’ll be doing is for which one of these you’ll be going for during the show.
• Night’s Watch Campfire
Created by Irma’s head mixologistJonathan Rodriguez at W South Beach, the Night’s Watch Campfire is inspired by the iconic military order. Now that the wall has been breached, we’d like to think this cocktail will keep the surviving watchmen warm.
• 1.5 oz Jameson
• .5 oz Baileys
• 1 oz Demerara
• 1 oz coco Lopez
Add all ingredients in the shaker. Shake vigorously. Pour over rocks and garnish with marshmallows. Roast marshmallows until preferred crispiness. Garnish with a rosemary sprig.
• Mother of Dragons
Created by Myn-Tu in partnership with Ron Barceló rum, raise your glass to the Khaleesi with the Mother of Dragons, which mixes Ron Barceló Añejo with blackberries, simple syrup, lemon juice and agua fava.
• 2oz Ron Barcelo Añejo
• 3 muddled blackberries
• ¾ oz simple syrup
• ½ oz lemon juice
• 1 oz agua fava (can use egg white for photo purposes)
Garnish: Rosemary sprig and peauchyed bitters
Dry shake for 10 seconds, add ice and share for 30 seconds until foam appears. Strain into coupe glass. Garnish with a rosemary sprig and a line of peauchyed bitters
• High Tea at Highgarden
Lady Olenna Tyrell, known as the Queen of Thorns, will gladly want to you know it was her…who made it. Available at Seaspice, the cocktail uses Cardamom tea infused gin, simple syrup and fresh lemon juice.
