Tonight is the season 7 finale of Game of Thrones, and after this season and especially after the last few episodes (no real spoilers, I promise) I think we all need a drink. The Night King, with his steely gaze, has been quite the busy boy lately. I’ve always been a fan of blue drinks anyway, so I thought a cocktail in his and the other White Walkers’ honor (or to sip while we hate-watch him) sounded like the perfect beverage to enjoy at the close of the season.
The juices in this drink are not tropical, as that seemed inappropriate with the White Walkers inhabiting the snowy land beyond the wall, but they still combine to make a delicious mixture that might make even the Night’s Watch jealous.
- 2 parts Vodka
- 3 parts Hypnotiq
- 1 part Apple Juice
- 1 Part White Cranberry Juice
- Splash of Lemon Juice
- Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with 2-3 cubes of ice and shake until the outside of the shaker gets uncomfortably cold to hold.
- Strain into a martini glass rimmed with sugar or frosting if you desire (although no lining needed to enjoy!). You could even add a rock candy javeli— *ahem* –stirrer if you’d like.
- Get ready to watch Game of Thrones and pray your favorite characters make it through the night.
