The White Walker 

The night is dark and full of terrors, but you need not face it alone. Not when you have an arsenal of liquid courage at your fingertips. Reach for the vodka, that clear elixir with the power to steady nerves and embolden hearts. 60 ml should do the trick. Now for the Kahlua, 30 ml of its sweet embrace to soothe worries and warm from within. Cream, 30 ml, soften edges and wrap you in velvet. This trio, mixed with ice, transforms into a shield against the gathering storm. Shake them together, hear the clinking of ice echoing the clash of swords on the battlefield. Pour into your vessel of choice. Lift it high in a silent toast to absent friends before the first luxurious sip. Feel it course down your throat, liquid luck lighting your veins afire. The army of the dead approaches, but you will not face them unafraid. Not tonight. Tonight, you have your armour, your talisman, your drink conjured from magic and memory. Tonight, you will live.

The Littlefinger 

Transport your taste buds to the lush orchards and fragrant spice bazaars of the East with this refreshing gin cocktail. We begin with the bold juniper and coriander notes of 45 ml of Bombay Sapphire East Gin, named for its exotic botanicals from India and Thailand. Next, add a dash of Italian intrigue with 15 ml of sweet and herbaceous Ramazzotti Amaro. To awaken the senses, we'll spike the drink with the fresh, grassy flavour of micro cilantro - about 5-6 delicate stems will do. Squeeze in 15 ml each of vibrant grapefruit and lemon juice to provide a tangy citrus base. A couple dashes of Peychaud's Bitters add rhubarb and anise complexity. Now for the fun part - grab your shaker and rattle it all up with ice to chill and blend the ingredients. Strain into a Collins glass over fresh ice. For garnish, twist a long cucumber slice around the inside of the glass for a refreshing crunch in each sip. Your taste buds are now whisked away to an exotic oasis with this beautifully balanced gin cocktail that mingles herbaceous, floral, citrus, and spice flavours. Santé!

Baratheon Brew 

Transport your taste buds to the rugged highlands of Scotland with this bold yet refined cocktail. As you grasp the chilled glass, inhale the complex aromas arising from the tumbler - earthy peat smoke from the single malt Scotch mingles with the nutty scents of dry sherry. Take a sip, allowing the liquid to coat your palate, and savour the interplay of flavours. The smooth Scotch forms the backbone, its smoky character tamed by a touch of sweet syrup. The dry sherry lends fruity undertones of almond and dried cherry, while faint herbal notes from the bitters add depth and balance. Each element melds together harmoniously, creating a symphony of tastes that delight the senses. Close your eyes and let this cocktail sweep you away to rolling green hills and windswept moors under brooding skies.

Sansa Stark’s Lemon Drop Martini 

Begin your cocktail journey by preparing the glass, running a fresh lemon wedge around the rim and dipping it into a shallow dish of fine sugar to create a delicately sweetened edge. Next, the magic truly unfolds as we combine 45 ml of citrus vodka, 15 ml of freshly squeezed lime juice, and 30 ml of sweet and sour mix in a shaker filled with crushed ice. The tart lime and sweet sour marry beautifully with the zesty vodka, creating a symphony of citrus flavours. After a vigorous shake to blend and chill, we carefully strain the elixir into our sugared glass. The enchanting concoction catches the light, winking flirtatiously with its radiant yellow hue. Finally, we garnish with a thin lemon wheel, adding a finishing touch of colour and a hint of perfumed citrus oils. One sip transports you straight to the tropics. The invigorating citrus flavours dance on your tongue as the icy chill cools you from the inside out. Each element complements the next in this sunshine-filled libation.
