Tru: Blood Are You Ready for a Bloody Good Drink?

Fashion weekly said "

For those of you obsessed over True Blood on HBO (check it out, if you criminally still haven’t!), here comes perhaps the best treat any TV fan can get. The once-fictional Tru Blood beverage from the show is now being turned into a real Blood Orange carbonated drink that will arrive in shops this September. But the show’s creator, Alan Ball, had other ideas of what his dream ingredients for the drink should be. “Cabernet, the blood of European hemophiliac royalty, vodka, Viagra, and ecstasym” he recently joked. “Unfortunately, it’s highly illegal.”

Thanks to SarahFW for the drink recipes:

The Fangbanger - Tru Blood, Vodka

Death on the Beach - Tru Blood, Peach Schnapps, Pineapple Juice, Vodka

Plasmapolitan - Tru Blood, Citron, Cointreau, Fresh Lime Juice

* I've already had a Fangbanger ;-)

Thanks much to HBO for sending a sample to fans. It tastes like Fresca! LMAO! Remember the Fresca reference in Epi 1x05--Sparks Fly Out?!?
