To celebrate the beginning of the fourth season of Game of Thrones, what better than a Game of Thrones cocktail? My favorite character on the show is Dany, the Khaleesi, and I adore her so much that I declare any episode that omits her the worst episode known to mankind. Lady crush, I think. Plus, dragons. ‘Nuff said! This drink has a lemonade base, with the bubbly sweet pinch of Dragon Fruit to celebrate the Khaleesi’s “children”. Mix one up and sip away during the show!
Mother of Dragonfruit Cocktail
(serves 1.5 or a tall glass!)
-1 ½ oz SKY Dragonfruit Vodka
– ½ oz Triple Sec
-1 cup lemonade (I used Simply Lemonade, sometimes a little more than a cup)
-Sparkling diet Ocean Spray cranberry, about half a can
-lemon slices to garnish
Mix the first 3 ingredients with ice in a shaker, pour into your glass of choice. Top with the sparkling cranberry for a layered color effect, or mix right in and enjoy. Garnish with lemon slices.
