This second installment of my Game of Thrones cocktail series is one for the ages. The Mother of Dragons Cocktail is a vodka-based, exotic blend of cucumber, lemon, and dragonfruit, and it’s as intoxicating as Daenerys Stormborn herself.

Dragonfruit (also known as pitaya) is indigenous to Central America and Asia and is related to the cactus. It has either red or white flesh and distinctive black seeds. Its flavor is mildly sweet, somewhat like a kiwi or pear. As soon as I found frozen, cubed dragonfruit, I knew I’d have to incorporate it into a Mother of Dragons Cocktail honoring Danaerys. I was delighted to find how vibrantly colored the dragonfruit was, and I loved watching the color bleed into the drink. I didn’t want to add too many competing flavor, either, because the dragonfruit is so delicate.

Mother of Dragons Cocktail is a very simple cocktail to make. If you don’t love cucumber, substitute basil or mint. Swap gin for the vodka, if so inclined. You could even make this a mocktail by leaving the alcohol out entirely.

  3. In line with my research, after a foreclosed home is sold at an auction, it is common to the borrower in order to still have the remaining balance on the loan. There are many financial institutions who try to have all service fees and liens paid off by the future buyer. Nevertheless, depending on selected programs, rules, and state guidelines there may be some loans that are not easily sorted out through the shift of lending options. Therefore, the obligation still lies on the customer that has received his or her property foreclosed on. Thanks for sharing your ideas on this site.
