Is stress over Cersai's evil plotting driving you to drink? Does Tyrion's constant wine-guzzling have you hankering for some mead? Need to cool down after gawking at the hottest mother of dragons ever? These Game of Thrones cocktails can help! What is it about watching the HBO phenomenon that makes us thirsty? Whether it's the steamy love scenes or the crazy amounts of bloodshed, on Sunday nights we like to settle down with the hard stuff.
But what to drink? Our list of Game of Thrones cocktail recipes covers everything-- from drinks that are as tough as Jon Snow to sinful sips made for Sansa Stark. Maybe you want to show your loyalty to your favorite house, since "it's the family name that lives on. It's all that lives on." For you, there's The Buck's Fizz for House Baratheon or a Lion's Tail for House Lannister.
Maybe you just want to pay homage to your favorite character with The Imp, The Kingslayer, or a Stark and Stormy. If you're having a party, consider whipping up a big batch of Dragon's Blood Punch, no slaying required. If your group is smaller, maybe consider just sipping on Milk of the Poppy. It will surely help to dull your pain while you wait for next week's episode to finally be available for your viewing pleasure.
As Tyrion says, "It's not easy being drunk all the time. If it were easy, everyone would do it." With these drinks it might just be. So vote for the most tempting looking GoT cocktail you'll definitely be making next Sunday! But before jumping into these Game of Thrones alcoholic drinks, beware: like winter, your hangover is coming.
