This ‘Game of Thrones’ Cocktail Will Help You Mourn The Fact That There’s Only One Season Left

Who saw the season finale?

Last night’s (Aug. 27) Season 7 Finale of Game of Thrones was unreal. Want to know something else that is unreal? We only have one more season of this unbelievable show.

There has not been any official announcement of when we will get to see the final season, Season 8, but it might not be until 2019… NO.

“Casey Bloys, HBO’s head of programming told Entertainment Weekly in June that fans may have to go 18 months without dragons and direwolves. The episodes could drop at the end of 2018 or sometime in 2019.”

In order to mourn this incredible loss, I thought it would be fitting to get our drink on. It might be a long 18 months. VinePair came up with this perfect Jon Snow cocktail that I have to try, especially since that name might be going away…

Let’s get started…

VinePair’s description of Jon Snow and how this cocktail relates makes total sense:

Jon Snow is relatively honorable, strong, and reliable. Start with a pure base of clear Reyka Icelandic vodka, muddle some cucumber, top with tonic, and garnish with mint.


2 ounces Reyka vodka
1/2 cucumber
4 ounces tonic


Combine vodka, cucumber, and mint. Muddle. Add ice and shake for 10 seconds. Pour over ice into a Collins glass, top with tonic, garnish with mint.
