“There is a lot that can happen between now and never.” – Petyr Baelish

Because a lot of us are glued to our screens on Sunday nights, watching another world come to an end—or not—we need sustenance to survive. I’m talking about “Game of Thrones” cocktails, of course!

“Winter is here,” so try these elixirs:

The Night’s Watch Campfire

The Night’s Watch Campfire cocktail was inspired by GOT’s iconic military order and created by the W South Beach’s head mixologist Jonathan Rodriguez.

  • 1.5 ounce Jameson
  • ½ ounce Baileys
  • 1 ounce Demerara
  • 1 ounce coco Lopez
  • Garnish: rosemary sprig

To make: Add all ingredients in the shaker. Shake vigorously. Pour over rocks and garnish with marshmallows. Roast marshmallows until preferred crispiness. Garnish with rosemary sprig.

The Mother of Dragons

SServed at Myn-Tu, the Mother of Dragons cocktail was created in partnership with Ron Barcelo and mixes Ron Barcelo Añejo, blackberries, simple syrup, lemon juice and agua fava.

  • 2 ounces Ron Barcelo Anejo
  • 3 muddled blackberries
  • ¾ ounce simple syrup
  • ½ ounce lemon juice
  • 1 ounce agua fava
  • Garnish: rosemary spring and Peychaud bitters

To make: Dry shake for 10 seconds, add ice and share for 30 seconds until foam appears. Strain into coupe glass. Garnish with a rosemary sprig and line of Peychaud bitters.

High Tea at Highgarden

The High Tea at Highgarden cocktail was made by Lady Olenna Tyrell (the Queen of Thorns) at Seaspice—or at least she says it was her. This uses cardamom tea-infused gin, simple syrup and lemon juice.

  • Infuse Bombay Gin with Earl Grey Tea leaves and cardamom
  • 1½ ounces tea-infused gin
  • ¾ ounce simple syrup
  • ½ ounce fresh lemon juice
  • Garnish: lemon twist
