Make A Stoli Vodka Game of Thrones "Mother of Dragons" Cocktail

Even though Game of Thrones has its own official beer, every television show needs a proper, matching cocktail. Leave it to Stolichnaya, then, to come up with one: the Mother of Dragons cocktail.

It's not endorsed by Game of Thrones and not available anywhere, it's just a drink anyone can whip up in a Stoli frenzy. Luckily, the purveyors of premium Latvian vodka shared the recipe with us.
