A COCKTAIL of ICE and FIRE


Arya is blind, Daenerys is captive, her alpha dragon, Drogon, is licking his wounds, Cersei is bald, Tyrion is still drinking, Jon Snow is still dead and Winter Has Come, dragging White Walkers with it. Just another day in the neighborhood in the Land of Ice and Fire.

I say we set flame to some booze and prepare for war.


A COCKTAIL of
ICE and FIRE
A Flaming Drink for
Game of Thrones

INGREDIENTS:
3 Oz. Malbec Wine
1/2 Oz. Diplomatico Rum
1 Oz. Bacardi 151 Rum
1 Oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Oz. Fresh Lime Juice
1-1/2 Oz. Small Hamds Organic Orgeat Syrup
Ice

Garnish: Sugared Lemon Wheel, Sugared Raspberries, Lime Slice

Tools: Cocktail Shaker, Strainer, Bar Spoon, BBQ Lighter or Fireplace Match, Small Plate, Straw

Glass: 12 Ounce Julep Cup (or any other Medieval looking metal tankard)

DIRECTIONS:
Soak the lemon wheel, lime slice and raspberries in some 151 rum.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice then add the ingredients and shake to chill.
Strain into an ice filled glass then add the garnishes.
Turn the bar spoon upside down over the top of the drink then slowly pour the Bacardi 151 rum over the spoon back so it will layer on top of the fruit and cocktail.
Carefully* set flame to the 151.

Enjoy the spectacle of the blue flames for a few moments then lay the plate over the drink and EXTINGUISH FLAMES BEFORE DRINKING! Insert straw and serve.
If you allow the drink to flame for too long you could heat the glass and the top layer which could burn your mouth even after the flame is extinguished so exercise caution and serve with the straw.

Yes, I used my silver Julep cup again. Sadly, I don't happen to have a great Medieval tankard laying around.

*Flaming Drink Precautions
Before lighting the cocktail on fire, have a fire extinguisher at hand, move all the spirits away, wipe up any liquor spills, wipe any residual alcohol off your hands, make sure you're not wearing loose clothing or have any napkins, towels, etcetera that could be exposed to the flame.  Do not blow out or slap out the flames as the burning liquid could spill out and spread the fire. Use common sense and do not attempt to flame any cocktail while drunk!
