Intriguing. Mysterious. Satisfying. This pretty much describes the dangerously delicious Three-Eyed Raven Cocktail. The beverage uses Montelobos Espadin Joven Mezcal which has notes like mesquite hickory, honey and roasted agave in this stand-out sipper. Easy to sip, the Three-Eyed Raven has a beautiful balance between sweet and earthy with a refreshing citrus bouquet on the nose. It’s a great choice for mezcal rookies and a toothsome surprise for seasoned veterans.
Inspired by a pivotal character in the wildly popular Game of Thrones novels and television series, the Three-Eyed Raven Cocktail is reflective of the Three-Eyed Raven himself, Bran Stark. The alluring dark hue of the cocktail is due to the activated charcoal – a trendy wellness product which cleanses toxins from the body. The ingredient’s connection to the show is reminiscent of Bran’s ability to have out-of-body experiences. And of course, the color matches a raven’s black beauty. The ale reduction represents Winterfell and ‘The North’, (prime locations with extremely cold climates in the show). Ale was the libation of choice – easy to make as oppose to wine in the chilled region, and it is warming. The mezcal’s earthy undertones reflects Bran’s connection to the wierwood trees where he became the Three-Eyed Raven and gained his transient powers.
As countless fans prepare for the series finale, this cocktail is an ideal signature drink to mark the end of the epic series. It’s a must-try (and additive)! For a step-by-step demo on how to craft the three-Eyed Raven Cocktail, check it out here on POUR NYC. Cheers!
