We can’t deny that sometimes watching House of the Dragon makes us feel like we want to reach for a drink–does the unsettling first-hand view of the Targaryens’ fondness of incestual affairs ring a bell?
So why not try out a House of the Dragon-inspired cocktail flight to help ease the post-episode cringe?
This cocktail flight is being served up at The Moxy Downtown’s Recreation bar and consists of three cocktails, each representing a different house from the series–House Targaryen, House Hightower, and House Velaryon.
Targaryen’s cocktail is a Mezcal Negroni, a fiercely smoky yet slightly nectarous concoction, meant to represent both the dark and light side of the coin that determines a Targaryen’s fate. The Hightower’s cocktail is an Old Fashioned for those who prefer simplicity rather than over-the-top drinks with all the frills, and Velaryon’s cocktail is a Prosecco Spritz, the fizziness meant to imitate the waters on which the seafarers sail in the royal fleet.
Once you’ve finished your flight and have decided which house you believe is fit to rule based on your taste preferences, enjoy Recreation bar’s half court-sized basketball court, Twister Board painted on the floor, Jenga, and old school arcade machine packed with games like Pacman and Donkey Kong.
