1. Bon Temps your lounge-
2. To drink….
True blood inspired cocktails
Blood sucker- for those partial to blood, mix: Bacardi, Cointreau, pineapple juice and either strawberry or raspberry puree for that blood like effect.
V - Is vampire blood that when taken by humans and sends them on a drug like trip. This cocktail is inspired by Tequila Sunrise (which is not good for vampires): Tequila, orange juice and substitute blackberry brandy for the grenadine to make the colour extra dark like vampire’s blood
3. Clean drinking
Non- alcoholic drinks- for those teetotal fans who are as clean and innocent as Jessica (Bills protégé) when she was first turned into a vampire. Serve up:
Virgin Blood- Which according to vampires is tastier! Inspired by a Virgin Mary mix together: tomato juice, lemon juice, a dash of Worcestershire sauce, salt, ground pepper, Tabasco sauce and then garnish.
Glamourade- Glamouring is a form of hypnosis vampires use to bribe or sway someone to do something. Glamourade is inspired by good old fashioned lemonade, to make mix: sugar, water, lemon juice and add garnish of your choice.
6. True Blood bites
Blood spattered chocolate strawberries (dip in white chocolate allow to set and then splatter strawberry jus for blood effect)
Heart cupcakes (red velvet)
7. True Blood party games
Apple biting- Get your guests to wear plastic vampire teeth and then with their hands tied behind their backs, get them to bite an apple in a bowl (warning this is extremely difficult).
