Game of Thrones Cocktails (Via Leicester Mercury)
If you’re a massive Game of Thrones fan, then this could be your new favourite bar.
Manhattan 34 on Rutland Street has created a special range of cocktails to coincide with the seventh season of the fantasy drama series.
And it gets even better – because every Friday, the bar will be putting on a brand new cocktail and shot for the entire seven weeks the programme is on.
Starting last week, the first two cocktails to feature were The Night’s King – made with menthe pastille, cream and Blue Curacao – and a Wildfire flaming shot.
And from this Friday you can try the Mother of Dragons cocktail, which is made with Ginger Liqueur, Chilli Liqueur and Prosecco, as well as a secret ingredient.
If you’d rather try the shot, you can order A Lannister Always Pays Their Debts. It’s a mix of blood orange liqueur and gold rum.
Charlotte Wood, manager of Manhattan 34 and Game of Thrones fan, came up with the special cocktails.
She said: “I put on the first two cocktails as the staff were really excited about Game of Thrones starting. We had been counting down the days to the show starting for weeks.
“The reception was so good and the ideas kept coming. So I decided to do it for the duration of the show.”
The cocktails are named after characters and houses from the programme.
You’ll have to stop by the bar to see what they have in store for the rest of the season.
Manhattan 34 is at 34 Rutland Street.
