Season 7 of HBO’s hit (read: awesome) series ‘Game of Thrones’ debuts on July 16 and we, like everyone else, are pretty stoked to see what unfolds in Westeros. And while we watch to see what George R. R. Martin and the network’s writers have in store for us, you best believe we’ll be whipping up some strong cocktails to help the pain when your favorite character ultimately dies.
All the cocktail talk got us thinking: if the ‘Game of Thrones’ characters were to all hang out at a bar, assuming it wouldn’t turn into another Red Wedding, what would they order from the bartender? Well, after serious consideration and some light research, we have some thoughts.
What your favorite — or least favorite — GoT character would order from the bar:
Everything. He’ll drink everything. Good luck to the bartender who tries to cut him off.
Moscow mule. But only in a copper mug with a handle. Easy to drink with one hand, you know?
A poorly made-at-home cosmo. Shame. Shame. Shame.
Fireball shots for the squad.
Gin and tonic. Seemed like it was dead for awhile, but now it’s making a huge comeback.
Gin martini with two olives. Classy AF, but packs a hell of a punch.
Any drink that is garnished with a little sword.
Absinthe. Although, we’re not sure he needs the help to get out of his own head.
Vodka and water. But you’re not 100 percent sure if it actually has vodka in it or not.
Daenerys’ leftover Fireball shots… when she’s not looking.
Room temperature tequila… out of the bottle. No lime.
Sex on the Beach… Too soon?
Sandor Clegane (a.k.a. The Hound)
A cask of Guinness. The entire thing.
Is he even at the bar? He’s so sly, that one.
A cold pint of craft brew IPA and some book by an author you’ve never heard of.
Whatever someone is buying him.
Scotch. And he’d share the bottle with you and tell some dope stories.
A spicy red wine, like a Malbec. If she tries to share, maybe just ask for bottled beer.
Brienne of Tarth
Soda water and lime. She’s Sansa’s DD.
Anything she wants, on the house. What a doll.
The Mead-King of Ruby Hall sure as shit doesn’t drink Fuzzy Navels.
Negroni: a totally beautiful drink with lots of depth, but can be a tad on the bitter side.
Red sangria, spiked with mezcal. She does what she wants.
Grain alcohol, infused with rust and salt.
Definitely not wine.
