Tomorrow is the day. A+ television will return to its rightful place on Sunday nights. With HBO’s triple threat of Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley and Veep, there’s no better lineup to honor with a list of themed alcoholic drinks. Grab your supplies while there’s still time, for the night is dark and full of terrors.
Game of Thrones:
The obvious choice for Thrones fans is a bottomless glass of wine. But that’s kind of boring. A season premiere needs something a little more flashy. Something with fire.
Wildfire on Black Water Bay:
2 ½ oz. Rye Whiskey
1/2 oz. 151 Rum
1/2 oz. Simple Syrup
5 dashes of Angostura Bitters
Stir and strain the whiskey, syrup and bitters into a cup then set a piece of lime peel into the drink. Pour the rum on top of the peel then light it with a match. Blow it out before your cup gets destroyed and make sure you have some water nearby just incase your fire resistant Khaleesi powers are rusty. Find more recipes here.
If you can’t get your hands on a bottle of Aviato, we’ve got just the thing for your superior, intellectual mind.
For programmers it stands for Jump Computing Assembly. For drinkers it stands for Jager, Midori and Peach.
Take equal parts Jagermeister, Midori and Peach Syrup. Pour them layer by layer into a tall shot glass and, thanks to the magic of math stuff, they’ll remain separated. It’s cool and quick leaving you plenty of time to work on your Dick Jerk Algorithm. Find the original recipe here.
A POTUS with a mouth like Selina Meyer deserves a special kind of shot. After a few of these, running a country with the help of Jonah Ryan actually sounds doable.
The Presidential Shot:
1/5 oz. Grenadine
2/3 oz. Molinari Sambuca Extra
1/3 oz. Blue Curacao
1/3 oz. Van Gogh Blue Triple Wheat Vodka
Add the ingredients into a tall shot glass in the same order as listed. Enjoy. Find the original article here.
