Johnnie Walker releases 'Game of Thrones' recipe with 'White Walker' whisky

We can guarantee they're not serving these kind of drinks in Westeros

Johnnie Walker.

"Game of Thrones" is officially back, and that means fans of the show are all heading to their one friend's house who has HBO to watch the final season.

So, what do you do if you're that person who's hosting every Sunday for the next six weeks? Make your friends some Johnnie Walker whisky cocktails inspired from the show, of course.

Well sure, technically, you could make any cocktails and we're pretty sure your guests wouldn't complain. But we'll tell you about these for now.

Last October, Johnnie Walker unveiled a limited-edition version of its classic whisky called "White Walker," inspired by the undead army that lives beyond the Wall in Westeros in "Game of Thrones."

Besides being a collectible for "Game of Thrones" fans who love whisky, the printing uses thermogenic ink that reveals a hidden message once the bottle gets cold. 

And now the whisky brand has released a few cocktails inspired by the epic TV series that we know you'll love to sip on while you enjoy watching whoever is still alive (and if you don't watch the show, it's not many) in Westeros battle it out for the Iron Throne.

All of the drinks were created by mixologist Gabe Orta.
