5 Game of Thrones Cocktails to Help You Remember the Good Times and Deal With the Bad

By Bethany Ivie May 17, 2019

After eight glorious years of intrigue, espionage and whiplash-worthy plot twists HBO's beloved Game of Thrones is coming to an end. Though this final season is nothing if not divisive there's one thing we can all agree on: no one is getting out of this finale emotionally unscathed. These cocktails are just the thing you need to not only cut your tears (or rage) off at the pass but to help you face the bleak, Westeros-less future ahead of us all. 

WARNING: IF YOU ARE NOT CAUGHT UP ON SEASON 8 THERE ARE SPOILERS AHEAD!

1.Milk of the Poppy

Image and recipe via Tattooed Martha.

Regardless of the outcome of this last hurrah, you’ll need a tonic to soothe your emotional wounds. Act as your own Maester and administer some milk of the poppy to ease your pain. This recipe from Tattooed Martha  is reminiscent of a White Russian and promises to be as simple to make as it is effective.

Ingredients

  • 2oz vodka
  • 1oz Kahlua (or other coffee-flavored liqueur)
  • A splash of dairy (ideally heavy cream)


Directions

Combine ingredients over ice, stir and garnish.

Note: The original recipe recommends that you adorn your medicinal brew with a poppy. We suggest subbing the non-edible flower for a sprinkling of poppy seeds.

2.Mother of Dragons

Recipe via Geek Girl's Authority Image via HBO.

Daenerys Targaryen has been promising to take what is hers “with fire and blood” for…a while now. This season, she made good on her threat and torched King’s Landing along with all of its inhabitants. This cocktail from Geek Girl’s Authority will help you navigate the shell shock you feel as you gaze upon the ashy ruins of Westeros’ capital city one last time.

Ingredients

  • 1 oz Mezcal
  • 1/2 oz Tequila
  • 1/2 oz Ancho Reyes Chili Liqueur
  • 1/2 oz Agave or Simple Syrup

Directions

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker over ice and shake. Pour into margarita or martini glass and garnish with a chili/salt rim.


Note: If you can't find Ancho Reyes Chili Liqueur you can substitute your own chili-infused tequila

3.Arya’s Needle

Recipe via A Heaping Spoonful, image via HBO.

This simple shot is small, sharp and can sneak up on you quickly just like the Hero of Winterfell herself. It will be a handy weapon against the rising anxiety you feel as you learn the ultimate fate of Westeros’ ultimate bada**.

Ingredients:

  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1/2 oz ginger beer
  • juice of half a lime

Directions: 

According to A Heaping Spoonful, pour all the ingredients into a shot glass. Imbibe until you have mentally conquered every plot twist that's ever hurt you. 

4.Sansa’s Lemon Cake Martini

Recipe and image via Hunger, Thirst, Play.

How is our favorite older sister going to come out in all of this? Are we ever going to see her again? I don’t know. NO ONE KNOWS. And that uncertainty is precisely why we need this martini inspired by Sansa Stark’s favorite childhood treat.

Ingredients

(for lemon martini)

  • 2oz lemon vodka
  • ¾ oz fresh lemon juice
  • ½ oz simple syrup

 (for optional pound cake rim)

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1 and ½ cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 pound cake
  • Zest of 1 lemon

Directions: 

In a cocktail shaker, combine the vodka, lemon juice, and simple syrup.  Fill with ice, cover and shake vigorously for 15 to 20 seconds.  Pour into glasses and enjoy.

Note: Without the pound cake garnish, this is nothing more than a standard lemon martini. See the original recipe by Hunger, Thirst, Play for the full directions on how to properly adorn your glass with actual cake. Actual. Cake. 

5.Giant's Milk À La Tormund

Recipe via The Tipsy Bartender, image via HBO.

In order to face the yawning void that is a future without Game of Thrones, you’ll need the strength of our favorite wildling. As we now know, that means a healthy serving of giant's milk. The Tipsy Bartender tried his hand at replicating the magic...elixer and be warned: it'll knock you off your feet quicker than a bear that you're romantically interested in.  

Ingredients

  • Hennesy
  • Fireball Whiskey
  • Goldschlager
  • White Chocolate Liqueur 
  • Rum Chata
  • Irish Cream


Directions:

Add equal parts of each liquor to a large mason jar. Add ice, seal the jar and shake. Serve. Pray.
