Spirits of Westeros: The Bloody Melisandre
By WiC Staff on in WIC Live.


The folks over at WIC Live have released another edition of Spirits of Westeros! Last time we learned how to make the Red Wedding Martini. This time around, Jessica Kinney shows us how to whip up a Bloody Melisandre.

Sounds like a good hangover cure.

Frankly, given the Red Woman’s penchant for burning people alive as a sacrifice to the Red God, we wouldn’t have minded seeing some high-proof stuff poured on top so the drink could be briefly lit on fire.

That, or one of the ingredients could have been leeches and/or Kings blood.

Ah well, vodka and beer will have to do.

    That beer looks like a Corona, which is all wrong. Everyone knows Melisandre worships the Lord of Lite.

    A wolf named Dire,

    She has been filming some of these extra segments while we have been rotating in some guests. She will be back on this week’s show!

    So by drinking this we might be able to get rid of some our known antagonists, or those who despise AFfC & ADwD? I’ll take several please.

    Hodor’s Bastard,

    So you liked the episode too? I know most book readers got a stroke from it, but some of us loved it.

    Did not read. Racism? Really?

    I loved the episode but yes…I also had a virtual stroke. I am recovering and coping with acceptance with everything but the direwolf nonsense. Even so, I enjoy the creativity associated with this series even more. Books will be books and the series is the series. It is getting harder to compare the two….almost no reason to do so anymore.

    [….I did enjoy joking with you when you posted on Sunday night!] :)

    ” To a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail ” ( Mark Twain ). Sadly this refers here to many fans, besides. Don’t get caught up in the undertow , you’ll drown. I prefer to swim with the fishes and on to open

    I love how the comments just rip the article to absolute shreds.

    Okay, like how does a Melisandre drink even exist when it doesn’t somehow light on fire?

    This is a bloody mary with beer.

    Leathra is right! Not only does this cocktail sound nasty, it’s thematically all wrong. Beer in a bloody mary for a seductive, mysterious woman? NO FIRE!? Being red is not enough. I am incensed, gentlemen.

    If 5mash is incensed, gentlemen and gentlewomen, then I too am incensed!

    I demand a new Melisandre drink! With Fire NOT Blood!

    Fire And Blood,

    I have to agree, if its not on fire, its not for Melisandre!
