At long last, “Game of Thrones” is returning. We can’t wait for Sunday!

To mark this momentous occasion, we’re experimenting with drinks inspired by “GoT” and its characters. This beautiful cocktail from A Heaping Spoonful was made with the lovely Sansa Stark in mind.

You will need:

  • 1 ounce vodka (preferably rose vodka)
  • ¼ ounce liquid saffron
  • 1½ ounces sweet vermouth
  • 1½ ounces lemongrass syrup
  • Juice of 1 orange

Tips: Liquid saffron can be purchased online; you can also make it yourself by steeping a few strands of saffron in hot water. If you can’t find lemongrass syrup, you can also use simple syrup, which is made by dissolving equal parts sugar and water.

Adorn your Lady Sansa Stark cocktail with a slice of starfruit. Get the full recipe for this and other “GoT” drinks from A Heaping Spoonful.

We think Sansa would be very pleased with this creation.
