A wise man — okay, Tyrion Lannister — once said, "It's not easy being drunk all the time - everyone would do it if it was." We concur, especially when it comes to those sacred Sunday nights in which a new episode of Game of Thrones airs. If you're sipping the right drink, one is plenty.

With this mantra in mind, we tapped our friends at Stoli to dream up a GoT-inspired cocktail to toast the beginning of Season 4. Brand ambassador Lindsay DiFulvio Eshelman came up with the "Fire & Ice," a drink equal parts spicy and icey, with garnishes befitting of our favorite bloodthirsty drama.
