Look at all the effort that goes into making the ice cubes!


Red Wedding Ice Cubes

3 cups boiling water

¼ cup loose-leaf hibiscus tea

½ cup brewed English Breakfast tea

6 thyme sprigs

¼ teaspoon orange blossom water

¾ cup Demerara sugar

¾ cup ginger ale, preferably Blenheim


  • Orange peel
  • ½ ounce Averna
  • 2 ounces aged bourbon, preferably Elijah Craig 12-year-old bourbon
  • 3 Red Wedding ice cubes (recipe above)


1. Make the ice cubes: In a large heatproof bowl, combine the water, hibiscus tea, English breakfast tea, thyme and orange blossom water and let steep for 5 minutes. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Add the ginger ale, then strain through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher. Pour into 1-inch square ice cube molds and freeze until solid.

2. Make the cocktail: In a double Old Fashioned glass, muddle the orange peel with the Averna. Add bourbon and stir briefly, then add ice cubes and stir until just chilled, about 20 seconds. Serve immediately.

I'm having beer(s).  The only Red Wedding ingredient I have is the special ice cube tray.

That does seem like a crazy amount of work to make ice cubes.

Have you found a good Game of Thrones season 5 drinking game yet?


Is there a Game of Thrones toast?

Tyrion once toasted the "god of tits and wine" but Bronn is more creative.
