If you're in the San Francisco Bay area, you can pregame Season 5 of Game of Thrones at my new favorite SF bar, Blackbird. Why? Because Cersei throws down, and you should too.
According to San Francisco Eater, this Castro neighborhood watering hole has a brand new, not-so-secret menu of cocktails inspired by the TV show. I don't know about you, but I'm hounding for a Hound.
Here's the full menu (all cocktails $10):
The Drowned God: white rum, fino sherry, cacao, salt, served up (created by Tim Hagney of Maven)
Greensight: Vida mezcal, Aveze, genepy, dry curacao, acid phosphate, served on a rock
Broken Stag: James Pepper rye, Gran Lusso vermouth, Benedictine, Angostura bitters, served up with an orange twist
Purple Wedding: bourbon, creme de violette, cacao, lemon, chile de arbol, grape soda, served tall
The Hound: bourbon, plum, ginger, lemon, served on the rocks
The Imp: Zaya rum, Smith & Cross rum, Zucca amaro, creme de noyeux, lemon-tobacco bitters, served on the rocks
