No “Game of Thrones” premiere party is complete without a cocktail. Celebrate the beginning of the final season with these recipes inspired by the HBO drama.

Lyanna Mormont inspired Cari Hah, bar manager of Big Bar in Los Angeles, to create this “Game of Thrones” cocktail with a Scotch that’s about as old as the young Lady.

Little Bear

  • 2 oz. Aberfeldy 12-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch
  • 3 muddled raspberries
  • 1 sprig of muddled rosemary
  • 1/2 oz. honey
  • 3/4 oz. lemon
  • Korean grain powder/salt/sugar rim

First, muddle 3 raspberries in the bottom of a tin. Add the scotch, muddled rosemary and honey. Shake and strain into a cup rimmed with the grain powder/salt/sugar mix. If you order this at LA’s Big Bar, it may be served in an adorable bear cup.

For vodka fans, Svedka has created a version of Westeros’ preferred medicinal drink. However, this seems like it’ll go down much smoother than medicine.

Milk of the Poppy

  • 1 1/2 parts Svedka Cherry
  • 1/2 part amaretto
  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup ice

Throw all the ingredients in a blender on high for 10-20 seconds. Pour it into a coupe glass (preferably a chilled one) and garnish with a skewer of cured cherries and candied almonds.

Fans of the Lannisters or Bacardí will want to check out this next cocktail, created by Hemant Pathak, Junoon bar manager.


  • 1 1/2 parts Bacardí Reserva Ocho
  • 1/2 parts Grand Marnier
  • 1/4 parts crème de cassis

Giovanny Gutierrez, Havana Club Rum Ambassador, was inspired by the Season 2 battle when this “Game of Thrones” drink recipe was created.

Wildfire at Blackwater Bay

  • 1 1/2 parts Havana Club Añejo Clásico rum
  • 1/2 part aquavit 
  • 1 part pistachio orgeat
  • 1/4 part lime
  • 1/2 part champagne 
  • garnish with a small amount of absinthe lit on fire

Mix the ingredients and serve in a rocks glass over crushed ice. Those who would rather leave the flaming absinthe to the professionals can order this at Beaker & Gray in Miami.

Andrew Record, National Single Malts Ambassador in San Francisco, created another Scotch-based recipe for “Game of Thrones” fans.

“What Is Dead, May Never Die”

  • 1 1/2 oz. Deveron 12-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch
  • 3/4 oz. Svöl Danish Style Aquavit
  • 1 oz. Meyer lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. dashi syrup*

First, make the dashi syrup. Make a simple syrup by bringing 1/2 cup of water to a near boil and add 1/2 cup of cane sugar. Steep one sheet of nori and a 1/2 cup of bonito flake for one minute. Fine strain off all solids and chill the syrup before use.

Now you’re ready to make the drink. Combine all the ingredients in a shaker tin over ice. Shake and strain into large rocks glass over ice. Use a sheet of seaweed for garnish.

Mixologist Gabe Orta put together three different cocktails using Scotch whisky. It’s a perfect way to use limited edition White Walker by Johnnie Walker.

The Night King’s Sour

  • 1 oz. White Walker by Johnnie Walker
  • 1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. white grape juice
  • 1/2 vanilla syrup
  • 1 egg white

Simply throw all the ingredients into a shaker, add ice and shake. Strain into a rocks glass, and enjoy your drink.

Dragonglass Old Fashioned

  • 1 oz. White Walker by Johnnie Walker
  • 1/4 oz. Zacapa rum
  • 1/2 oz. smoked cinnamon syrup
  • 2 dashes of Dram palo santo bitters
  • 1 dash angostura
  • 1 rosemary stalk

Making the drink just involves stirring all the ingredients except the rosemary together and stirring with ice for at least 30 seconds. Take your ice and fire theme to the next level by using a burned rosemary stalk to smoke the rocks glass before pouring and include a diamond ice block to finish it off.

Army of the Dead

  • 1 and 1/4 oz. White Walker by Johnnie Walker
  • 5 oz. coconut soda

This cocktail recipe is perfect for anyone short on time. Add both ingredients in a highball glass, add ice and stir for 2 seconds. Garnish with a lemon wheel and mint sprig.
