STORMBORN COCKTAIL for Game Of Thrones


Inspired by Season 7, Episode 2 of Game Of Thrones, this rum drink is named after the episode title and Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, First of her Name, The Unburnt Queen of the Andals, Breaker of Chains, Mother of Dragons, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea. (Enough titles for ya, Dany??)

It's also named for the storms coming, both Daenerys and the White Walkers.

I wanted to create something that looked like an incoming storm descending upon the Land of Ice and Fire. The Butterfly PeaFlower Tea float gave me exactly the color and visual effect I wanted while adding a very subtle floral essence to the tropical style cocktail of coconut and rum.

The BIKINI MARTINI

http://themartinidiva.com
The Bikini Martini was created by Dick Bradsell for a swimwear launch in 1999. Supposedly he named the drink in honor of the Bikini Atoll where atom and hydrogen bombs were tested after World War II. Some say the name was because the shock of the cocktail was supposed to be on the level of an A-bomb, I would rather think it was the color of the ocean in the Marshall Island area that inspired the drink. (Sadly, the Bikini Atoll still remains uninhabitable nearly 70 years after the tests.)

Whatever reason, it's a beautiful blue cocktail with refreshing tropical notes that packs a decided kick.
