JordanCon's Favorite Recipes: The Silver Circuit

The Silver Circuit

Mat Cauthon understood this drink. A hot, dry day of betting on horses in Ebou Dhar requires something that can quench your thirst and cool you down all at once. A "very good hat" is de riguer, but scarf and foxhead medallion are entirely optional.

JordanCon's Favorite Recipes: Oatcakes & Cream

Oatcakes & Cream

Every winter we spend a few weekends creating and testing new drink recipes to share with our friends at JordanCon. Only the best recipes accompany us to Atlanta, usually only one or two. In early 2015, however, we had a particularly long, cold winter; as a result, we ended up with a handful of new recipes to share this past year at JordanCon 7.

"Oatcakes and Cream" is another of the drinks that came out of that long winter season: a drink designed to keep you warm and content through long dark evenings when the wind is blowing down from the mountains across the ruins of old Manetheren, blustering down the Old Road, curling around doorways and under coat flaps, when the snow is thick and crunchy under your feet, the bright moon silvery and cold in the sky as a mirror, and you hear the shivery howl of a wolf out across the chill waters of the Waterwood...

JordanCon's Favorite Recipes: The Gathering Storm

The Gathering Storm

Every winter we spend a few weekends creating and testing new drink recipes to share with our friends at JordanCon. Only the best recipes accompany us to Atlanta, usually only one or two. This past year, however, we had a particularly long, cold winter; as a result, we ended up with a handful of new recipes to share this year. One of the most dramatic (and requested) of those was a layered cocktail we like to call "The Gathering Storm." Take a look at the photo below and you should understand why.

New Drinks for JordanCon 7

Those of you attending Jordancon 7 are probably already thinking about all the fun things you'll get to do and see next weekend - the fantastic guests, the panels, the dance party, seeing friends both old and new - but, as usual, there is so much more that you won't even find out about until you get there. So, we've decided to give you a few hints. Three, to be exact.

JordanCon's Favorite Recipes: Sheepherder and The Black Ajah

Sheepherders and The Black Ajah


Twenty-five years ago "The Eye of the World" was first published, featuring everyone's favorite sheepherder, Rand al'Thor. To commemorate that event, we thought it would be a great time to publish our recipe for JordanCon's version of a White Russian, called, fittingly enough, a Sheepherder. A rich tasting drink that's slightly chocolatey, yet not too sweet, it's just the right drink to sit down with as you start your latest re-read.

Of course, you can't have saidin without saidar. If you like your world a little darker, skip on down to our Black Ajah recipe!

JordanCon's Favorite Recipes: Forkroot Tea

Forkroot Tea


Rosemary gives this drink a "slight, minty taste," while Irish Whiskey gives it a kick that can defeat the strongest channeler. Always drink responsibly, but, if you do plan to overindulge, make sure your Warder is there to drive your carriage. The recipe below is per drink.

JordanCon's Favorite Recipes: Graendal Grog

Graendal Grog
AKA "The blue stuff"

Here's a summertime drink that's sure to pique the interest of your guests with its frostiness and cool teal color. Perfect for a crowd of adoring worshipers, it's an exquisite combination of rum, citrus, sweetener and ice that subtly entwines itself into your taste buds. A drink so powerful and perfect that sailors sailed around the world and gladly accepted it in lieu of their wages. Imbibe, adore, and just be... happy...

JordanCon's Favorite Recipes: Double Dragon

Double Dragon

Smoke and Fire! Created by request for The Dragon Reborn, this is a drink that elicits comments like "This thing'll kill me!" Technically it is a mixed drink, because Chip takes two whiskeys and mixes them. One of the key ingredients is serrano chili peppers, so it is also quite spicy. So...be careful, and drink with caution.

JordanCon's Favorite Recipes: The Battle Ajah

The Battle Ajah

This drink could easily be called a "spicy" Appletini, but ours has a special little kick to it, thanks to the "secret ingredient." Don't say we didn't warn you! It's green, slightly fiery, and will take you by surprise - no wonder it's Alanna Mosvani's favorite cocktail!

JordanCon's Favorite Recipes: Blood and Bloody Ashes

Blood and Bloody Ashes

Based on a Roaring 20's cocktail called "Blood and Sand," our version is dryer than the original to match our sense of humor. And, because it's made with Blood Oranges, you can usually only get the ingredients during the winter months. But it's well worth the wait. Just like the ending of our favorite book series.

Take equal parts of the following:

  • Fresh squeezed blood orange juice
