It has been over a year since fans watched the season 7 finale of "Game of Thrones", but the premiere of the final season is almost here.

Season 8 of "Game of Thrones" premieres Sunday on HBO and to help get you through the last season we have created a list of show-inspired cocktails, one for each of the army’s left fighting for the Iron Throne – House Lannister, House Stark, House Targaryen, and the White Walkers.

The question is, who will you choose: The Mother of Dragons, The Night’s Watch, Cersei of House Lannister, or the White Walkers?

Here’s the recipe and directions for our four Game of Thrones inspired cocktails.

Mother of Dragons

Ingredients:

  • 1 Dragon fruit (you will need to cut 3 balls out of the fruit using 1/2 tsp spoon or melon baller)
  • Rosé champagne

Directions:

  1. Scoop the balls of dragon fruit out and place them in a champagne flute.
  2. Top with the Rosé.
  3. Cheers!

The Night’s Watch

Ingredients:

  • 2 Parts Tequila 
  • ¾ Part Orange Juice
  • ¾ Part Lemon Juice
  • ¾ Part Agave
  • 2 Dashes Orange Bitters (optional)
  • ½ Part Beet Juice (Note: We used pomegranate juice to change the flavor)
  • Lemon Wedge

Directions:

  1. Serve in a tall glass over crushed ice
  2. Pour a beet juice float – the beet juice will slowly float down the glass through the crushed ice, making it look like blood dropping down.
  3. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
