With Season 6 of True Blood premiering on Sunday, June 16th, there are preparations to be made. Considering how trippy and disturbing the previous seasons have been, you’re going to want a drink or two. Or maybe more.
2. Blood Orange Campari Cocktail
The oranges on these drinks are so blood red and juicy that it’ll leave vampires drooling.
3. Arlene’s Bloody Mary
From the official True Blood cookbook “True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps”.
4. Witches brew
Holly, Merlotte’s resident witch and waitress, could probably use one of these after all the things she’s seen happen in Bon Temps.
5. The Green Fairy
This drink’s notable ingredient is absinthe, which has been described by some as giving hallucinations. Because more hallucinations exactly what you need while watching True Blood.
6. Hair of the Wolf
Hair of the Wolf is made up of hard cider, pale ale, your choice of brandy or bourbon, and apple pucker. Alcide would undoubtedly approve.
7. Pink Sugar Glitter Cocktails (Fairy Juice)
Having one of these a day is probably how the True Blood fairies get to be so darned sparkly.
8. The Hurricane
A classic Louisiana drink. Let’s not forget that time in Season 1 that Bill tried to pass off a killing as a “natural disaster.” Goodness knows what he’s capable of now with all the power he’s been getting.
9. (Blood) Red Sangria
Pass this fruity drink off as blood during your True Blood viewing.
10. Bleeding Mimosa
Whatever you do, try not to be that person who sucks on a blood orange ice cube while yelling, “I veel suck your blood!”
Use red food coloring to add the appearance of blood dripping down your cocktail glasses.
12. True Blood drinking game

-Bill says Sookeh.

13. Play BINGO
Take a drink every time you check off a square.
