The return of Game of Thrones. If Jon Snow is really dead, we’ll need a drink to get over it. If he’s alive, ayyye, let’s toast his resurrection.
It’s been nearly a year that we have collectively held our breath in hope that Jon Snow and his flawless hair is not dead. Or at least just temporarily dead. Or dead but soon to be Melisandre’d back to life. Tomorrow night we learn if our prayers have been answered and I. Cannot. Wait.
Whether you’re planning a big viewing party or just you ad your significant other, here are two cocktails that will help you toast the new season.
