Celebrate the Return of Game of Thrones With These White Walker Cocktails

Last October, Johnnie Walker unveiled “White Walker” a special limited-edition Game of Thrones blend of the iconic whisky. The big draw of the White Walker (beyond the delicious whisky inside, of course) was the bottle, which uses thermogenic ink that reveals a surprise message when you toss the bottle in the freezer.

I snagged a bottle in October with plans to drink it during this year’s series premiere.

While my plans entailed just drinking it straight, the folks at Johnnie Walker sent over a few drink recipes this week that use the whiskey in Game of Thrones-inspired cocktails. If you’re like me and are still holding on to a bottle or two, here are a few ways to use it.

And if you can’t get your hands on a bottle of White Walker, I imagine another bottle of Johnnie Walker will do.
