With the Game of Thrones final season kicking off on Sunday, we have our minds on all things royal, boozy, bloody and capable of double-crossing us. Fitting all of this to a tee is Hudson House's Royal Bloody.
The plot goes like this: Your group of merrymakers ventures out for brunch at Hudson House. Bloody Marys are ordered, but a girl at the table knows the secret: The Royal Bloody is the way to go. A girl knows The Royal Bloody is the key to brunch.
The round of brunch cocktails arrives, but all are jealous of the trappings a girl has and look on with green faces. Her cocktail includes extra accoutrement like bleu cheese-stuffed olives, shrimp cocktail and an oyster. A girl has to protect her prize. So, down the gullet the cocktail and its garnishes go. A second is ordered and a similar scene occurs.

And then, the double cross: The strong bloody mary not only takes away the bite of her hangover, but offers a bit of tipsiness. And then a girl Ubers home and has a great nap and wakes up refreshed in time to watch her story.
Brunch is coming, and we should all know where to get the royal treatment.
