A Game of Thrones Cocktail via Tipsy Bartender

This is a pretty interesting mix with the Jalapenos and the Bourbon. I can only imagine the hotness, spice, and sour of the lime all rolled into one. According to Wikipedia, Game of Thrones is a really popular series on Cable TV based off "A Song of Ice and Fire series, and author Martin has stated that the show's pilot script was very faithful to his work. Set in the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, Game of Thrones chronicles the violent dynastic struggles among the kingdom's noble families for control of the Iron Throne; as the series opens, additional threats from the snow and ice covered region north of Westeros and from the eastern continent across a narrow sea are simultaneously beginning to rise."

The new season is slated to start on April 1, 2012. Here's the break down of the cocktail.

1½ parts Basil Hayden's bourbon
¾ parts fresh lime juice
1 slice jalapeno
1 part pomegranate juice
½ part simple syrup
Splash of soda water

1. Muddle lime juice, jalapeno, pomegranate juice and simple syrup in a mixing tin.

2. Add bourbon and shake lightly for five seconds.

3. Strain into a Collins glass, add ice and top with soda water.

4. Garnish with a lime wheel and pomegranate seeds.

I agree with Skyy John being it a once in a while drink. I mean, it's not an everyday drink, but experiment with and see if you like it. This could be a good drink for people with more exotic tastes. Check out the video below:
