Drogon’s Breath Cocktail
In Game of Thrones lore, the dragon has three heads. And each would love to sate their thirst on this libation. A hint of bright citrus perfectly balances the rich earthy element the wine in this cocktail delivers. Refreshing, delicately sweet, and tangy, this drink if fit for a queen. A few leaves of fresh basil adds a delightful herbaceous layer to the drink, but feel free to leave it out if basil isn’t your flavor of choice or you don’t have it on hand— the cocktail will still be delicious. Tame the Mother of Dragons with the refreshing summer sipper, or double up on the ingredients and serve this at your next King’s Moot. Pro-Tip: Using crushed or pulverized ice and packing it tightly in the glass will ensure you’re able to “float” your red wine on the cocktail mixture.
Note: The last two ingredients listed, along with the entire third step of this recipe, is completely optional. This is simply an explanation of the method we used to create a flaming version of this cocktail for show; this step is in no way necessary to create a delicious beverage.
