GAME OF THRONES COCKTAILS


“When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground.”

I admit it, I'm a Thronie. What's a Thronie? A ridiculously obsessed fan of George R. R. Martin's epic "A Song of Ice and Fire" novels and HBO's series "Game of Thrones". Call me a geek and whip me with a Valeryian steel sword, I'm obsessed enough to do a whole slew of this fantasy world inspired cocktails. And I did.

As a history buff and fantasy fiction fan, it was the dragons and the Medievil, ancient Greece, ancient Rome, Mongol hoard influences that sucked me right in. There's a little something in Game of Thrones for everybody, lots of booze, lots of sex, intrigue, drama, killing, mystacism, and even a bloody Red Wedding. And did I mention dire wolves and dragons? Love me some prehistoric, extinct canines and fire breathing bird ancestors.

And don't get me started on the banquets and drinking. I'm already there.

MOTHER'S DAY BERRY MIMOSA COCKTAIL


Several years back I created a berry infused Mother's Day Martini. In the years that have passed I have learned a bit more about cocktail preparation and I decided it was time to update the recipe a bit.

 Normally I use fresh berries, but in this recipe I employed frozen berries to make use of the juice when they defrost. To get the berry juice you simply defrost the berries. In the bag will be all this lovely berry juice you can use in your cocktail. Set aside enough frozen berries for garnish. Yes, you can buy mixed berry juice, but garnish with frozen berries because they will help keep your cocktail chilled as you drink!

Why make Mom a special drink on Mother's Day? Because you're probably the reason she needs the drink.
