Spirits of Westeros- Arya 51
Welcome to Spirits of Westeros where host, Jessica Kinney, helps you combine the love of Game of Thrones with the love of alcohol.
This weeks drink is named after Arya Stark, the youngest daughter of the Stark family. It’s named Arya 51 because many people have heard her name, but almost no one knows where she is, much like the government facility Area 51. Arya has traveled all over Westeros since her father Ned Stark was beheaded. She started off pretending to be a boy traveling to the Wall and then Tywin Lannister picked her as his personal cup bearer having no idea who she was. She went on the meet Jaqen H’ghar and escape her captors only to be picked up by the Brotherhood without Banners. Her escape from them was short lived as she was then captured by the Hound and taken to the Twins. They arrived just as her brother Robb and her mother Catlyn Stark were being viciously slaughtered. After that, she just missed her sister at the Eyrie, left the Hound to die and now she is all the way in Bravos. I am exhausted and need a drink just talking about all the traveling she’s done! If you want one too, here’s what you’ll need:
½ oz Whiskey
½ oz Tequila
½ oz Rum
½ oz Vodka
½ oz Gin
¼ oz St. Germain
¼ oz blood orange juice
¼ oz Lemon
Dash simple Syrup
1 Sprig of Mint
Muddle Mint in the shaker and add the rest of the ingredients and ice. (Shake the shaker) Strain into your glass and enjoy. Garnish with a mint leaf.
As you drink this amalgam of ingredients representing the many places Arya has gone, the hint of sweetness at the end might give you hope for her future. This one’s to you Arya Stark and your adventures to come!
