You guys, look at all the absolutely groan-inducing Game of Thrones references/puns I can make to let you know this post is about Game of Thrones-themed drinks! All men must drink. Wheat beer is coming. You know nothing, Jon Sake. A Lannister always pays his bar tab! When you play the Game of Thrones you win or you wine!
Polish food blog Gruszka z Fartuszka, which according to Google Translate means Pear with Apron, came up with the recipes for the delicious-sounding beverages tied to each of the main Houses in the story thus far. “But Alicia,” you might be saying, “we don’t speak Polish!” To which I say, “really? Who doesn’t?” But also: that’s OK! A trusty blogger over at Neat Shots of Life translated the recipes into English to ensure we all have a delightfully boozy time.
Our personal favorite by flavor profile alone is House Tyrell’s (which feels sacrilegious for this Targaryen gal but hey: the night is dark and full of terrors).
Take a look at the images below and find out what it takes to make these creative concoctions at home. (Full recipes in English are here.) Bonus points if you make an extra one for me!
What do you think the other Houses drinks would look like? Mormont Mule? Tarly Twist? Let’s hear ’em in the comments.
