Giant Chocolate Dragon Eggs Are the Perfect Pairing for the Game of Thrones Premiere

Answer the door in your best Daenerys Targaryen braids (or Jon Snow wig) because British food delivery service, Deliveroo — similar to Uber Eats and GrubHub — is offering Dragon Eggs in time for the final season of Game Of Thrones. The promotion is a clever play on HBO’s premiere of Game of Thrones on April 14 and its proximity to Easter on April 21, because these eggs will be made of chocolate.

Deliveroo Dragon Eggs are each two pounds of Fair Trade white chocolate and come in three hand-painted colors to replicate the eggs gifted to Daenerys in the first season. They will be available for order on April 14 to coincide with the season premiere.

If you’re not a Thronee and have never seen the show, all you need to know is the three eggs are rust-red, green, and gold-ish, coordinating with the color of the dragons inside. Drogon is black and red, Rhaegal is green and bronze, and Viserion is white and gold, but crack open Deliveroo’s eggs and they’re all white chocolate.

A bit of a bummer if you’re a milk or dark chocolate dude. Then again, there are plenty of treats to be had at Easter, so don’t fret too much — especially since these Dragon Eggs are only available in London, Manchester, and Leeds. Unfortunately, you can’t get them in the U.S.

Deliveroo is expecting the promotion to breathe fire since they “see huge spikes of orders around season premieres and finales,” says Joe Groves, a public relations expert for the company. “We thought what better way to celebrate hardcore fans than with these amazing scaly creations.”

In 2017, Deliveroo set up a Game of Thrones-themed pop-up bakery called “You Know Nothing Jon Dough” and sold out of Direwolf loaves before the store even opened. Considering this success and that the season seven premiere set a record with 10.1 million live viewers, Deliveroo shouldn’t have an issue selling the chocolate eggs.

The price should help them fly as well, costing only £0.80 British pounds ($1.05 USD) per egg … which sounds insanely cheap considering Palmers Big Blinks two-pound chocolate rabbits run about $20 per cottontail.

Since these giant rabbits are our only American frame of reference to comprehend the sugary madness of Dragon Eggs, it’s notable that a Big Blink has 20 servings of chocolate at 27 grams per serving (540g for the whole bunny), and that white chocolate is notorious for having more calories and added sugar. That’s because white chocolate doesn’t contain any cocoa powder, just cocoa butter. Then again, if you eat all three, it’s a great excuse to order a pair of Adidas’ Game of Thrones running sneakers.

Set the mood for your Game of Thrones viewing party by grabbing dragon egg-scented candles, White Walker whisky, or a Jon Snow-style leather jacket.

Dogfish Head and Northern Monk are collabing for a trans-Atlantic rye IPA

Iconic U.S. craft brewery Dogfish Head is collaborating with hip British brewery Northern Monk to create a rye session IPA that brings together the best of each brewery. The collaboration is the first in a series from Northern Monk, working with a group of friends called Endless Hum, aiming to celebrate bands and artists beloved by the brewers and to create the perfect beer for watching your favorite musicians live.

The rye session IPA is citrusy with orange and resin, plus juniper, sage, and other spices and features a hint of tropical fruit.  "Monk and Dogfish Head came up with the concept over two shared ideas; firstly, we both have enjoyed playing with small percentages of rye in the grist of session beers for that extra depth of flavor and mouthfeel it can bring, and secondly, we both enjoyed the white sage twist we added to last year's Hop City collaborative release," Northern Monk writes.

These new whiskies from Chivas Brothers can only be found in duty free
Pick up a bottle the next time you travel
Scotch drams

Two new whisky collections from Chivas Brothers are on their way to release, but if you want to pick up a bottle from either, then you'll need to check your airport next time you're flying. The new releases are exclusive to "global travel retail" -- or duty-free to you and me.
Royal Salute Small Batch Collection
The first of the pair comes from Royal Salute, which is debuting its Small Batch collection. The idea is to showcase rare and unusual whiskies that have been aged for several decades in various casks. Eight whiskies are in the collection, all presented in distinctive purple packaging and each aged between 25 and 28 years. Some of the casks used include rye, French oak, and Pedro Ximénez sherry, and the bottles will sell for between $450 and $750.

“Each of the eight whiskies available in this Small Batch collection were matured in special casks which I have personally selected on my travels around the world," said Sandy Hyslop, master blender at Chivas Brothers. "This is a truly unique collection, with each individual whisky having a unique flavor profile, providing an array of choice to suit different preferences and open up new tasting experiences.”
Ballantine's Golden Hour
The second release is from Ballantine's, which is introducing a 23-year-old Golden Hour series. The series features blended Scotches aged for 23 years, with the first release aged in Cognac casks. This 40% abv bottle will be released first in travel retail in the Asia Pacific region, selling for $279.

Grab some pastis and try a Mauresque cocktail
The Mauresque cocktail is perfect for a hot summer day

One of the great delights of being a cocktail enthusiast is trying new flavors and drinks from around the world that you might be not exposed to otherwise. One drink that's popular in its home country of France but rarely seen outside it is pastis -- an anise-flavored spirit that's commonly enjoyed as an aperetif (and occasionally used in cooking as well). Flavor-wise, pastis is similar to its better-known cousin, absinthe, but it doesn't have such pronounced bitterness and uses milder star anise for flavoring rather than the brash green anise.

That makes pastis a more sippable, mellow alternative to absinthe. On hot days, it's commonly mixed with water and ice for a pre-dinner drink. This preparation is also responsible for the drink's most distinctive feature: when water is added, it turns from clear yellow to soft, milky white.
