Are you starved for Game of Thronescontent? Parched, perhaps? Well, until the final season comes out, you can quench your thirst on some new, Game of Thrones themed whiskies! According to Men’s Journal, HBO has teamed up with Johnnie Walker brand Diego to create eight bottles of special-edition whiskey. The first seven correspond to the notable Houses of Game of Thrones, while the last one is an all black version representing the Night’s Watch. HBO has previously teamed up with breweries to make drinks such as ‘Queen of the Seven Kingdoms’ and ‘King of the North’. They even produced a White Walker themed drink, which no doubt has quite the kick to it.

The different whiskies were brewed at different Scottish distilleries, each corresponding to the countries of the GOT’s universe. The aim was to brew the drinks to be as close to the fictional lands they hail from as possible, with the added flair of Scottish character into the mix. The bottles are available now and while we wait for the upcoming new season, you can binge the first seven seasons, with one of these cups in hand. Which bottle would you choose? House Stark? House Targaryen? Let us know in the comments!
If you’re not already familiar with the concept, Hannah Hart‘s web series My Drunk Kitchen might (lit)erally blow your mind. Step one: Hart imbibes some serious alcohol, sometimes with famous guests (and by famous, we mean Sarah Silverman and John Green famous). Step two: she tackles a serious recipe. Oh, and she films the entire thing. Hart launched her successful YouTube channel nearly a decade ago in 2011 (which, of course, doesn’t feel like it should have been as long ago as it is). In all that time, Hart’s built up her brand—and, we assume, her liquor tolerance.

In 2014, Hart published her first cookbook with a small press. This year, Random House nabbed the follow-up: My Drunk Kitchen Holidays!: How to Savor and Celebrate the Year. Some of us need alcohol just to survive the holidays, let alone actually celebrate them. But Hart’s book isn’t just about the holiday season—a.k.a. the uncomfortable family reunions and nightmarish retail hell that is the end of the year, regardless of which holidays you choose to celebrate. It’s about holidays and special occasions throughout the year, starting as early as Valentine’s Day (which, let’s get real, might be an occasion for a drink or two). It goes so far as to include less conventional holidays, including Pride Month and the niche Left Handers’ Day.

In an official statement, Hart discussed the upcoming cookbook:
Plume and Penguin Random House are the perfect partners for the next My Drunk Kitchen book. Together, we are all ready to take this kitchen to the next level. I’m more than ready for 2019 to have something fresh, funny, and fulfilling. How about you?
Though the book has a set release date of October 22, 2019, you can pre-order it now! We’re excited that it’ll come out just before Halloween, so we can eat, drink, and be scary!
