Continuing our exploration of Game of Thrones themed drinks, here I give you the Blackwater Bay, a creation of the Boy.
For those of you not in the know, Blackwater Bay is the body of water beside King’s Landing, the capitol city in Game of Thrones (and, from what I can tell, the home of the main throne that all these games are about). In the second season [SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! But only kind of.] there’s a big huge battle there, and stuff happens. Basically. So it’s a body of water that totally deserves to have a drink made about it.

A Blackwater Bay is basically a mojito with blackberries muddled into it (hence the “Blackwater”). Hey, no one ever said we were doing things that had never been done before...
Yield: 1 drink
