There is only one thing that could turn around my bright white and colorful summer posts and that's the tiniest sign that winter is coming. That's right today's post is in honor of the Game of Thrones' season premiere this weekend! Game of Thrones is one of B & mine's favorite shows. This weekend we'll be skipping our typical Sunday pizza night and pulling out all the stops for a Game of Thrones viewing party. Which will include this show stopping melon martini called Wildfire!

If you're familiar with the show (and if not, look away because spoilers) Wildfire is an explosive green liquid that is used in two seriously major events in the TV story. One when Tyrion wins the Battle of the Blackwater and it shows up again, where we left off last season, with Cersei using it to burn the Great Sept of Baelor. So I knew if I was going to make an electric green cocktail for Game of Thrones, I had to set it on fire. So grab your best heat proof glassware, we're getting you're Game of Thrones party lit.

This cocktail is simple to make but potent to boot. All it is is Midori (any other green colored melon liqueur), watermelon vodka, and regular vodka. You give that a good hard shake in a shaker full of ice and pour into a heat resistant coupe or martini glass if you plan to light it on fire. If not any coupe or martini glass will work.

HOW TO LIGHT WILDFIRE ON FIRE

Warning Bacardi 151 is highly flammable. Please use caution while making this cocktail and make it in a safe environment. Elle Talk is not held liable for fires, burns, or other actions. 

After pouring your cocktail into your coupe you'll want to gently turn over a bar spoon placing it up against the inside of the glass above the liquid line. Carefully pour 1/4 ounce of Bacardi 151 on top of the spoon. Let it slowly layer over the top of the cocktail. Seal up your 151 and put it back in your liquor cabinet and wipe away any Bacardi 151 spills/drips from your working area. Then with a long stick lighter (a grill lighter) you'll catch a flame. Let the flame from the lighter just hover over the cocktail until the Bacardi 151 catches fire. Let the fire burn out or blow out when ready to consume. Let the glass cool before drinking from it or use a straw to sip on the cocktail after the fire has been blown out!
