In honor of the fact that I finally started to watch Game of Thrones this month (Up to season 3 holla! Better late than never, right?) and my boyfriend and I are kinda addicted, here’s a very royal cocktail from Crown Royal. It uses Crown XO, their reserve-quality whiskey which is suuuuper smooooth. This goes down way too easy. Just like some of the characters on Game of Thrones. Ha ha.
The Royal Monarch
1 oz Crown Royal XO
.75 oz sweet vermouth
.235 oz maraschino liqueur
.25 oz herbal liqueur (Benedectine)
Combine in a mixing glass. Stir all ingredients with ice and strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon twist.
