SPOILER ALERT: Contains spoilers from past scenes of Games of Thrones. One of the most shocking scenes of Game of Thrones was the explosion of the Great Sept of Baelor, in which Queen Margaery perished, among many others. We know Cersei Lannister orchestrated this, and her weapon was the formidable wildfire, a neon-green, volatile substance also used in the Battle of the Blackwater. This Wildfire Game of Thrones Cocktail is an homage to Cersei’s plot, complete with floating rose petals to symbolize the fall of House Tyrell.
Midori is necessary to get that green color, but it’s seriously sugary. I tried to temper its cloyingness with lemon juice, which worked, but it’s still quite a sweet drink. So if’s that not your thing, I highly suggest the Lioness or The Little Hero.
If sweet is your thing, then shake on, my friend.
A drink as green as the Game of Thrones explosive for which it’s named.
- 2 ounces Midori liqueur
- 3 ounces lemon juice
- 3 ounces gin
- rose petals
Shake all ingredients except for petals in a shaker with ice.
Strain into two glasses.
Float rose petals.
