🍷what we're wine-ing on
start the night off with a hippocras wine mixer this wine is a 🌺High Garden Speciality and made by mixing wine with sugar and spices (cinnamon). Sounds like mulled wine to us? Cersei’s 🔥hot take - “A man may prefer the taste of hippocras, yet if you set a tankard of ale before him, he will quaff it quick enough.” 🤷♂️
move on to cersei’s arbor red which originates from Arbor, one of the 🤑richest places in Westeros that lie in its Southernmost region. You'll never find 👸🏼Cersei without it- it is the most common 🍷red wine in Westeros for the High Born and is often called Red Water 💧. The modern-day equivalent is an Italian Nebbiolo.
top yourself off with arbor gold ☝️Little Finger has said “I can get anything with lies & Arbor gold. A sweet, rich golden wine whose suspected equivalent is Sauternes — the dessert wine from the Bordeaux of France which, has been described to taste “like heaven” - rich 🍑golden fruit dipped with 🍯honey and spiked with a touch of acidity 🍋.
🍽what we're dine-ing on
shake shack’s secret menu inspired by the meeting of fire and ice delivers a swoon-worthy pairing of Dracarys Burger with a Dragonglass Shake.
