flaming cocktail

For the finale of Game of Thrones, you know I had to go out in a blaze of glory. Enter this Dracarys flaming Game of Thrones cocktail. It’s a rum-based dragonfruit concoction, topped with a floater of Cruzan 151 and ignited. Because it wouldn’t be a Danaerys cocktail if it didn’t burn a little bit, amiright? (Too soon?)

Flaming cocktail with rum


This flaming Game of Thrones cocktail is best prepared at the beginning of the night so everyone has their wits about them. I discovered that Bacardi stopped making their 151, but Cruzan picked up the slack. Always use a long lighter, make sure no alcohol has spilled anywhere near, and remove any flammable materials away from the area. Before drinking it, blow out the flame and make sure it is truly extinguished. Pour it into a new glass to drink it, as the rim of the glass will be quite hot.

Dracarys, this Flaming Game of Thrones cocktail is fruity, tart, and potent, so proceed with caution (literally).

  • 6 cubes frozen dragonfruit
  • 1.5 ounces light rum
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 ounce overproof (151) rum
  • .5 ounce St. Germain


  1. Combine dragonfruit and light rum in a bowl or cup and let sit for 5 minutes.

  2. Shake all ingredients except for the 151 rum in a shaker with ice.

  3. Pour into a short glass.

  4. Carefully pour the 151 in the glass (use the back of a spoon to create a layer).

  5. AT YOUR OWN RISK, ignite the 151 with a long lighter. (Never use a match or a short lighter).

I’m probably in the minority, but I wasn’t surprised, at all, at the events of the last episode. This show has always conveyed how absolute power corrupts and exposed the baser elements of human nature. How can we expect our heroine to be immune?

So tonight, for the last time, I’ll raise my glass to the Mother of Dragons.

Danaerys Targarean cosplay
(Yes, that’s me in a Danaerys wig, attempting to look like I am wondering why Jon Snow didn’t just keep his mouth shut, trying very carefully not to spill my flaming cocktail while my husband takes photos and we guffaw at our ridiculousness. No, I don’t usually cosplay. Yes, I realize this is silly, but it made me laugh, and that’s good enough for me. Any more questions?)

If you’re as GoT obsessed as I am, check out the rest of the Game of Thrones cocktail series: The Little Hero (Jon Snow)The White Walker with Johnnie Walker, The Pointy End, Wildfire, and The Lioness (Cersei Lannister)
