JordanCon's Favorite Recipes: The Cosmere

The Cosmere

JordanCon prides itself on offering an inclusive and welcoming environment, where people of all stripes can have a wonderful time with other like-minded individuals. And by like-minded, we mean "people who love good books." We may look different, act different, believe different things, or come from all over the world, but at JordanCon we can both relish our similarities AND celebrate our differences.

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.

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.

Sheepherders and The Black Ajah

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.

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.

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.

As usual, he prefers to mix them in parts:

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!

Shake the following ingredients together with ice (or have your Warders do it):
