Celebrate The Return Of Game Of Thrones With These Bambarra Inspired Cocktails
Who's up for a White Walker?
Winter may be coming, but here in Turks & Caicos you'll still need a good supply of ice.
By now you've probably heard that the 8th, and final season of Game of Thrones will be premier on Sunday April 14th and like you, we here at Lovin are all eager to see who fill finally claim the iron throne.
For the next few weeks our Sunday nights will be fully booked to make sure we don't miss all the action, after all, you just KNOW that social media will be full of spoilers by Monday morning. You can try to avoid them, but barring a total social media blackout, someone will likely give something away that you'd rather not see.
To mark the occasion we've partnered with Bambarra to create some fantastic Game of Throne themed drinks which are perfect for a watching party or if you prefer to have a quiet Sunday night on the couch.
The Shore Club are even throwing a viewing party on Sunday night starting from 7pm with a recap of last season's finale followed by the premier of Season 8. Space is limited so if you want to join in all the GOT fun, be sure to call and book your place now
(Tickets are $50pp)
Stay tuned as the season progresses as we may have a few more up our sleeve as the story unfolds.
The White Walker
Put the ice, frozen pineapple, juice, coconut cream, and the white and dark rums into a blender. Blend until smooth and frosty. Pour the drink into 2 glasses and garnish the rim with pineapple slices.
3 oz (3 parts) Pineapple juice, 1 oz (one part) White Bambarra Rum, 1 oz (one part) Coconut cream.
The Red Priestess
This is a beautifully fruity, adult balance of bittersweet flavours
Muddled redcurrants with 2 shots of Bambarra Reserve, 1/2 shot of Slow Gin, 1/2 shot of lemon juice and 1/2 hot of Vanilla sugar syrup.
The Joffrey Lannister
Created simply by combining two shots of Bambarra Reserve together, with a good serving of ice, in a short class.
This is certainly one of the rum fans out there! Half a shot of Bambarra Reserve, topped off with a dash of red wine.
The House Of Targaryen (Fire and Blood)
Pour 2 shots of Bambarra Silver into a glass and swirl it carefully so that the liquid cover the sides of the glass, then pour away the remaining alcohol. Pour a drop of grenadine into the bottom of the class, and then finish by pouring the rum on top. Set fire to the alcohol before serving.

Or if our local rum isn't your thing, poor a "GON-TA-NORT" in a pint glass, put it back in the fridge for 10 mins then drink. That's called a Ned Stark (cause it lost its head).
Any other recipe suggestions? We'd love to hear from you!

The Spirit Of The Turks & Caicos
Bambarra Rum is inspired by one of our original settlements in picturesque Middle Caicos on Bambarra Beach, it takes its name from the home of the African settlers who were delivered to our shores by the winds of fate aboard the wrecked slave trader Trouvadore in 1841.
