This is not your Maester's brew. No need to travel to Westeros by using Littlefinger's favorite mode of transportation, aka teleportation, to enjoy a cool, refreshing glass of Game of Thrones' milk of the poppy.

In the George R.R. Martin A Song of Ice and Fire book saga and HBO series, milk of the poppy is a medicine made by the Maesters from crushed poppy flowers that's used as a painkiller and an anesthetic (or to help one sleep) rather than a delicious drink. On the upside, milk of the poppy is useful when used at a higher dose because it can make someone unconscious in order for Qyburn to perform some weird Westeros voodoo surgery. On the downside, it can be highly addictive.

SYFY WIRE has created an epic concoction for Happy Hour that can be highly addictive too, but in a good "let's have some fun and partehhh" way. Made of coconut milk, white Sambuca, gin and garnished with star anise, this delicious drink awaits you. As always, drink responsibly, sers.
