MOFO Day #10 True Grub: Make Your Own True Blood

This should have been the first entry, really. I'm not always thinking, so please forgive me.
You don't have to be a vampire or a drunk to enjoy this fruity and energizing concoction. If you are the kind that loves to drinky-drink, you could probably add a jigger or two of vodka or a fruity schnapps, but I don't think that's really needed. If you have a spooky glass, that's fine. I hear Pam and Nan have real fancy glasses they like to break out for their vegan friends. Plainer folk just serve it in a mason jar or Yahtzee tumbler.

Make Your Own True Blood

  • 1/4 c. beet juice -(you can use the stuff from the can if you're in a pinch)
  • 1/4 c. cherry flavored POM juice, or any pomegranate based juice
  • 1/2 c. blood orange juice
  • 1/2 c. blueberry iced tea -(any fruity iced tea will work)
  • 1/2 c. club soda, tonic, or seltzer water

Pam's Cosmo
Add 1-2 jiggers of high end vodka.

Nan's Fuzzy Thigh
Add 1 jigger of peach schnapps
Replace tea and club soda with 1c. strawberry Boone's Farm

I kinda gave up on True Blood awhile ago (got too annoyed with Soohkayyy) but your theme and posts are awesome!

Your theme is killing me (in all the good ways). I actually posted it on my FB page so all my Tru Blood friends will enjoy. The fact that this is alcoholic just makes it all the cooler.

Awesome. Do like. I'm making the True Blood for the premiere of the next season.

I've never watched True Blood. am I booted out of the club now? s'okay, I'll just have me a couple of these (made with a sneeze of alcohol because why not?) and everything will be okay.
