Morristown, N.J.’s newly renovated landmark, Palazzo Vail Mansion is now home to Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen. One of their featured drinks, the Game of Thrones cocktail is smokin’. It takes flame of a creme brulée torch to a cedar plank- the ensuing smoke will imbue each glass with the aroma of a fireplace, making the cocktail doubly warming. Talk about a song of ice and fire!
Try it yourself just in time for the season premiere.
Game of Thrones
- 1 cedar plank
- 2 ounces Bulleit rye
- 1 bar spoon 2:1 Demerara syrup
- 3 dashes Angostura bitters
- 2 dashes orange bitters
Using a creme brûlée torch, blaze a cedar plank and cap the smoking spot with an old fashioned glass, infusing the glassware. In a separate mixing glass, stir the rye, syrup and both bitters with ice. Turn over the seasoned glass and strain the cocktail over a large ice cube. Garnish with a twist of orange.
