Game of Thrones Season Seven Cocktails

A Game of Thrones Season Six Inspired cocktail

High Sparrow: I don't always get consumed by wildfire, but when I do I drink Laphroaig...

Of course being incinerated to ash by raging wildfire explosion (which is what happened to the High Sparrow in last season's finale) is not exactly 'cold and stiff'--but who am I to reject a bourbon and Benedictine cocktail recipe?

Still, while not actually a cocktail, I am thinking a neat Laphroaig, with perhaps a drop or two of water, addresses the current situation with the remains of the High Septon at King's Landing (Laphroaig tastes like it has been strained through the remains of a campfire). I would go with just a 10 year old Laphroaig, since the High Sparrow disdained anything overindulgent.

Several shots of Laphroaig will also give you breath like Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion. Or maybe Tyrian after a bender of a night.  

Since we are talking about wildfire though, here are some wildfire inspired cocktails:

Spoon University:  Here are Seven GoT inspired cocktails that sound like they might be very drinkable. In the words of Jon Snow and others from the show: Seven Hells!

Vinepair: Drink like a Lannister! Three cocktails for Season 7

Do you have a drinking word for the GoT Season Seven opener?

Rule 5 and FMJRA

AoSHQ:  I read this when it came out and I concur with Ace.

I do not mind if someone dislikes or rejects GoT (that is their right and I respect that) but spare me chidey lectures on what is 'good for me.' Had the writer written this on what was good for him, I would not criticize his views. Ace is also right, these so called arbiters of conservative thought are why people stopped paying attention to them.

Having watched GoT over the years and read the books, I do not think it is obscene. In its own way, it shows how some characters can change over time, as often for the better than the worse.  Like a lot of people, the characters are capable of good and evil.

But this is how Sandor Clegene would likely respond:
